The Grieving Process Has No Rules

The grieving process has no rules.
Break-ups, failures, and death hit us all differently.
Those intense feelings of loss are hard to deal with.
Some of us put it off until we’re alone in dark rooms, hiding emotions from family, friends, and day-to-day life.
Some of us dive right in, crying in public and seeking out fellow grieving souls. Misery often loves company.
It is okay to feel lost. We don’t always find answers in familiar places.
Though a healthy outlet is important, it is okay to be angry.
It is okay to cry. We have the world’s permission. Don’t keep that stuff bottled in.
There is no timeline. Our anger and tears might hit us while we pick out produce in a grocery store 30 years from now. That’s okay too… because the grieving process has no rules.
