Grieving Quotes

Losing someone to whom you were deeply attached to is perhaps one of the greatest losses. It is an indescribable feeling, wherein shock, regret, guilt, anger and sadness engulf you altogether, as your mind goes numb. You feel like you are in a world that is not real and soon your nightmare would come to an end. You wake up only to find that your loved one has seriously left you and that you would never be able to meet him/her ever again. You cry and cry, wail your heart out but to no avail. It seems as if the person has lent a deaf ear to you. No matter how much you grief, you need to understand that once gone, people never come back. The only way to overcome the sadness and grief is by coming out of the denial stage of mind and accepting the truth. Grieving is a natural process like death and one shouldn’t feel embarrassed about it. Even though the suffering could be more mental than physical, it drastically affects a person’s behavior for a certain period. This period is actually the time taken by a person to heal himself from the irreparable loss. Every person has different healing time, depending upon the loss, situation and his/her state of mind. Healing is a gradual process; it takes considerable time for a person to go back to the normal state. However, a supporting hand from friends and closed ones is enough to speed up the healing process. If your friend has lost someone and is in intense pain and grief, some comforting words from you can soothe him. Listed here are some best grieving quotes that can peel off the grief to a certain degree.
