Moving towards acceptance

Posted on May 9, 2013 by Martenson Family of Funeral Homes

Accepting the fact a death has occurred can be one of the most difficult parts of the grieving process. Our eyes have seen that a person we cared about has died, our ears have heard of the death, our heart has broken yet our mind does not accept it. It is perfectly normal to have these feelings following the death of a family member, friend or even a pet.

One should never push themselves to acceptance or let any other person tell them when to become comfortable with a loss. Acceptance is a gradual process and it takes time as well as love to come to a place one feels comfortable.

Piece by piece, I reenter the world. Birds console me by flying, trees by growing, dogs by the warm patch they leave on the sofa…

It’s like a slow recovery of one’s self…My mother was at peace. She was a free woman. “Let me go,” she said. Okay, Mama, I’m letting you go.
