Grieving Wears You Out
Last night I could not sleep. I just kept crying. My heart was so full of ache and hurt.
It was so tough to do my radio show this morning. I had no energy.
Once my radio show was over I made one stop for a client and then I had to come home. All I could do was take a nap.
It feels so awkward and unproductive to have days like this. I am used to going 100 MPH and making things happen. I don’t like it.
Grieving really does wear you out. I really don’t like that part of the grieving journey.
Don’t get me wrong — I am going to keep grieving.
I am going to keep grieving because I know that it is a journey and the only way to healthfully move through it — it is to walk it out.
If you avoid grieving — you never heal. I am going to heal. It’s just gonna take a long time.
One more thing — grieving sucks. It really does.
