Perhaps the grieving process shouldn’t just be about mourning the person we lose, but the same process should be applied to other areas of our life.
The job we lost out on or go on to lose, or in my case, the diagnosis I didn’t get. The upbringing we craved for and wish we had. The failed relationships we wish we could have handled differently. The past we’ve come to struggle with that we can’t let go.
I believe these things should be part of the same process. That way it may be easier to let go of the things that we can’t seem to let go of.
