Most times my life experiences provide a great amount of subject matter for my prose. However, there is one topic that I have started to write about and have been unable to send it out into the world. This topic is about that unavoidable, inescapable emotion – grief.
Losing those you love dearly is difficult and the emotions that are expressed vary with each individual. I started a blog post about the way that others relate to the grieving person in the midst of their obvious pain. Many of us are so uncomfortable in the face of grief that we don’t realize that our actions and/or discussions are inappropriate for the recovery of the grieving person. I want my post to be enlightening on this subject. However, at this moment my feelings are too raw about it due to my own experiences. My words need to be “tempered” before I can publish the post and I am willing to wait until I can accomplish that goal.
