When Reality Hits

There comes a point in time when the reality of a loved one is going to die…and it “hits” a person’s emotional side hard.  I venture to say we all know that impact when it has taken our breath away and tears flow and it is hard to breath.

I remember someone told me they just “hope people let the grief pour out” and let the heavy emotions “empty out” as best as possible.  To release grief, to express out the emotion is healthy and necessary…especially for the days to come.  Carrying those deep emotions unexpressed can be harmful, heavy, burdensome and paralysing.

I am so thankful for the honesty I see during end-of-life care.
