Thank you so much that I happened to read this because our cat was murdered by a bunch of teen boys and I’m grieving pretty bad especially having that horrible image of him. Thank you for honoring this feeling.
How awful, Coreen. Our animals are family, and the love we share with them is profound. I send you my deepest sympathy, and I hope that peace and healing find you as soon as possible. ❤
I am I the 8 year. And your comment is completely accurate. During the past 8 years I’ve lost my marriage, my dog & cat that brought me comfort, my mom & my job. Pulling oneself out of grief & guilt is extremely difficult.
That’s a heavy load indeed. Sometimes we are pummeled by heart-breaking circumstances over which we have no control, and I am so sorry for your pain. That is why I stress the importance of giving the healing process the time it needs. Yes, years and years if need be. You have every right to feel the way you do. We cannot pull ourselves out of grief because grief is something that must pass through and out of us until has been expressed in full – until it is gone.
Guilt is not an emotion. Guilt is you judging yourself – for things that happened – and/or for feeling as deeply as you are. We live in a system which tells us we should snap out of it, put the past behind us, and ‘move on’. And so we hold it all inside, never really healing, merely going through the motions of ‘getting on’ with life. Guilt is what STOPS us from feeling our true feelings. Guilt stops us from being honest with ourselves. Guilt is something we have to separate ourselves from without denying that it’s there.
When you do feel happiness, feel it fully, too. Let it IN. Wishing you much happiness, D Russo.
