Myths

Capture Your Grief - Day 7 - Myths

I suppose the most prevalent myth I've come across about grief is that time will heal everything. It's said in so many ways, but the truth is time doesn't heal all wounds. Things don't go back to normal in time. Grieving doesn't only take a year. However, I suppose all of those trite sayings come from the simple truth that in time, the raw excruciating pain, fades to a more bearable version. After enough time passes you find a new normal. And that the worst part of grief is typically the first year. The real truth is that you are never the same. I'm not. Not sure if that's good or not, but it is a fact.
