The Needs of Grief

(11:28)

The experience of Doug Manning is that the greatest need of grief is permission from ourselves and others to take the time to walk through the journey of grief.   You need to find safe places and safe people who won’t trivialize your feelings.

“Grief lasts longer than sympathy, which is one of the tragedies of the grieving.”
Elizabeth McCracken
“It's easier to miss her at a cemetery, where she's never been anything but dead, than to miss her at all the places where she was alive.”
John Scalzi, Old Man's War
"We find a place for what we lose. Although we know that after such a loss the acute stage of mourning will subside, we also know that we shall remain inconsolable and will never find a substitute. No matter what may fill the gap, even if it be filled completely, it nevertheless remains something else. "
Sigmund Freud
