People may tell us that we are too much, or that we are being over the top with our grief. Some people may ask us why we haven’t moved on yet, or that our situation really isn't that bad. We may be told to “just get over it” and move on with life.
Friend… no one can tell you how to grieve, or how long you should be grieving. Everyone grieves in their own timing and in their own way.
When I was grieving the loss of our son Josiah, I was told the grief I was feeling was a bad spirit that needed to be cast out of me… no joke. I was livid. In that moment I learned that my grief was my grief and no one could tell me how I should or shouldn’t be grieving.
The same is true for you. Your grief is your grief, and no one can tell how to navigate through your own journey.
