Could embracing death help us live? - Claira Hermet
In the western world it seems we spend a lifetime avoiding the acknowledgement of something that will happen to us all. So much so that when it does it happen, we are knocked so hard that our world can fall off its axis, and sometimes it stops spinning altogether. The only good thing that comes from a bad thing is what we choose to do next. How we choose to perceive the event and how we allow it to shape us. Which is our choice. This is not to say that we shouldn’t be emotional and feel our feelings, because not doing anything can be hugely detrimental to our healing. What I am saying is that it takes time to overcome, but as we start to see bits of our life through the fog that is grief, we have to decide how we want to view the event that has happened.
