    Do you mean to grieve for the rest of your life, or merely to grieve for the lifetime of a recently passed loved one?

    I've never known anyone who grieved for their entire lifetime over someone else's passing. Some people are able to deal with things more quickly than others, but most get back to having a life at some point.

    But, it's only natual to grieve for the lifetime of a loved one's when they pass.

    To spend your entire life grieving? No, get your smile back and live. Honour the memory, don't let them take you with them!

    So this is the strategy: Make a really broad topic and have other people make a real topic or topics out of it. Huh.

    I think the loss of some people in your life will cause you a lifetime of sorrow..., my wife, my daughter. I will forever be haunted by the death of my Grandfather because of the suddeness and the fact that I got back to him 24 hours too late to say goodbye. He'll never meet his Grandaughter etc... but again, these are feelings of sorrow, not grief.

    Nope, everything should be wrapped up in a neat little 30 min capsule. That's what TV has taught me.

    There is a time to grieve and a time to live.

    And so they should.
     
  14. Nope. Get knocked down, no matter how hard, get back up and learn to walk again.

    I thought we were supposed to keep all our emotions inside until they conviently come out one day while we're at a post office...

    Thanks for clearing that up. I have my share of grieving experiences, as we all have and will, and I've found that while initially being upset/sad/angered or what have you, celebrating the life always works best.

    cheers
