Embracing the Sadness of Grief Embracing the Sadness of Grief. By Alan D. Wolfet, Ph. D “In every heart there is an inner room, where we can hold our greatest treasures and our deepest pain.” — Marianne Williamson.

  Grief is caused through some form of loss. Whether that loss involves an individual, a situation or a phase of your life. You may wish your experience were something other than it .   If a memory arises & you start to cry-let it out. Talk about that memory with others. It is freeing & healing. Make new memories with those around you. God knows how you feel. He understands better than we know. Embrace pain with joy, bitter with sweet. Share memories of your loved one-laugh & cry. Let the emotions come out. It is very healing.

of grief is the pain of living against yourself, of denying how the loss changes you, of feeling alone and isolated – unable to openly mourn, to love and be loved. Sadness, pain of loss and depression are essential life experiences. Acknowledging that depression in grief is normal and necessary is one significant step on the pathway to healing.   Spiritual maturity in your grief work is attained when you embrace a paradox: to live at once in the state of both encounter and surrender, to both "work at" and "surrender to" your grief. As you come to know this paradox, you will slowly discover the soothing of your soul/5(2).
