GRIEF, GRIEF, WHEN WILL YOU GO AWAY … OR ARE YOU REALLY HERE TO STAY?
By Jill S. Cohen, NYC family grief counselor
A while ago, a website called Samada.com was being developed to provide end-of-life planning resources and support for those who were seeking information. The editorial staff reached out to me for my comments on a number of topics for their articles. I am sharing one of them with you in this blog.
It’s called How Long Does Grief Last. Read on and you may gain some perspective on this topic.
I want to emphasize the fact that when we are talking about grief, we never ever want to use the term MOVE ON.
The accepted term to describe what happens when life resumes after the experience of a death of a loved one is MOVE FORWARD. Because that is really what we do. We do not turn grief off and “move on”. But rather, we know that in order to survive and continue to live our lives, we have to move in a forward direction. So, please don’t ask anyone or even yourself if it’s time to “move on”.
