Grief is Not Intellectual

What You Must Know About Grief Series: Part #1

From the onset here, I want you to understand a basic tenet of grief:

We’re ill-prepared to deal with loss.

What do I mean by this statement?

We’re not assigning blame to them; they don’t know any better, as they, themselves, have never been taught how to properly grieve.

But, while we’re incessantly taught how to acquire things in life—money, jobs, degrees, mates, etc.—

  • Not in school.

That it’s all tired & flawed…
 
You open yourself to real healing. 🙂
 
With this in mind…

With that said…
