It’s snowing here. It’s been snowing a lot this month, the month we all get ready to move away from snow and outside into Spring. But you can’t hurry nature, it will do what it will do. We don’t get to understand the ‘why’s’ of it, it is out of our control.
This is similar to grief. We want to be ‘done’ with it; want to move on to our ‘regular’ life; want to feel good and ‘normal’ again. But, like the weather, you can’t hurry grief. It too, has a life of it’s own.
Be gentle with yourself; accept your frustrations and impatience; acknowledge that, like the Spring weather, you have up’s and down’s; sometimes you feel warm and comfortable while other times you are cold and blue. Get help if you want/need to: share with a friend, family member or therapist how you feel………..you’ll feel better for it.
REMEMBER THAT, LIKE THE SEASONS, THIS TOO SHALL PASS……….WE JUST DON’T GET TO CONTROL WHEN!
