Can Joy and Grief Live Together?
To all who participate in our Loss & Grief discussion group:
Recently a member posted, "I am learning that grief and joy can live together."
I've heard it said that life after a loss is like a railroad track. In other words, daily life is lived on one track and the grief and loss represent the other track and yet they run side by side. So while you are experiencing grief you are also moving forward with your daily life.
I was just wondering how are those of you have experienced loss dealing with those two tracks. How do you feel when you "get on with your current life."
Are you able to separate your current life with the remembrance of your loss?
