- Only people who are capable of loving strongly can also suffer great sorrow, but this same necessity of loving serves to counteract their grief and heals them. Leo Tolstoy
- I give you this one thought to keep– I am with you still – I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow, I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not think of me as gone – I am with you still – in each new dawn. Native American Prayer.
- You’re going to be okay. Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before. You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass. I promise it will pass. Daniell Koepke
- In these moments of heartbreaking grief, I remember the only reason why we have an empty space is because we were blessed with someone who loved us so beautifully it occupied an entire part of our soul. – Chelsea Ohlemiller
- Be the things you loved the most about the people who are gone.
- There will come a day when your tears of sorrow will softly flow into tears of remembrance and your heart will begin to heal itself and grieving will be interrupted by episodes of joy. And you will hear the whisper of hope. There will come a day when you will welcome the tears of remembrance. As a sun shower of the soul a turning of the tide. A promise of peace. There will come a day when you will risk loving. Go on believing and treasure the tears of remembering. (Author unknown - https://obituarieshelp.org/sympathy_poems_verses_time_heals.html)

- Grief is the last act of love we give our loved one. Where there is deep grief there is great love. Grief is a great rite of passage, it is a hero’s journey of courage, of sacred battles, sorrow, love, joy, and loss.
- Anger is a necessary stage of the healing process. Be willing to feel your anger, even though it may seem endless. The more you truly feel it, the more it will begin to dissipate and the more you will heal. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross and David Kessler
- The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not ‘get over’ the loss of a loved one; you’ll learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same nor would you want to. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross and David Kessler
- The only way to heal grief is to feel grief. You cannot heal what you don’t feel. It’s scary, it’s painful. Allow yourself to grieve, and trust that you will not get stuck in the pain. Trust that each day that you allow yourself to feel pain, you are increasing your capacity for joy.
- Grief is not a disorder, a disease or a sign of weakness. It is an emotional, physical and spiritual necessity, the price you pay for love. The only cure for grief is to grieve. Earl Grollman
- Nature heals sorrow. Nature heals grief. Spend time in nature, cry and weep, and trust that healing is taking place.
- Sometimes, fear of “getting stuck” in grief prevents you from feeling your emotional pain. After allowing yourself to grieve, engage in methods that help to boost mood. Listen to upbeat music. Go for a walk. Talk to a trusted friend. Laugh.
- Strength grows in the moments when you think you can’t go on, but you keep going anyway.
- Sometimes it’s OK if the only thing you did today was breathe. Yumi Sakugawa
- Cry whenever you need to. Scream. Shout. Lay on the floor. Sob in the shower. Be still. Run. Walk. Create. Live your truth. Share without fear. Listen. Release your pain. Breathe. Be Courageous. Throw away the map. Wander. Be real. Be compassionate. Read. Seek friendship. Be vulnerable. Don’t fear being broken. Zoe Clark-Coates
- Hope is like the sun, which as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us. Samuel Smiles
- Grief is a force of energy that cannot be controlled or predicted. It comes and goes on its own schedule. Grief does not obey your plans, or your wishes. Grief will do whatever it wants to you, whenever it wants to. In that regard, Grief has a lot in common with Love. Elizabeth Gilbert
- Today, I accept help. I choose to heal. I give myself permission to feel my pain. I allow myself to experience joy when it comes naturally. I don’t judge myself for laughing or smiling. I understand that the depth of my sorrow is in proportion to the depth of my love.
