“I just can’t get over Rob dying. I can’t sleep. I can’t eat. How did you get over Joe’s death?” she asked her friend through her tears.
“I didn’t.” her friend replied with a smile.
“What do you mean?” the response confused her.
The friend took a deep breath, “The term fighting grief is misleading. You can’t fight it. Trying to make it go away is a mistake. It will stick to you more. You have to just allow it. Make it a part of you. When you learn to live with grief, grief finds it hard to live with you.”
The friend knew she would not get it so fast.
That was another problem with grief.
