Grief Quotes

As much as we love it to be this way, a lifetime on planet earth can never really be filled with just joy and laughter. It will not take much to realize that life is full of ups and downs. While joy, laughter and cheer make for the ups, a certain emotion called grief almost makes for all of the downs that one can experience in life. The intensity of grief totally depends on how important the loss is.

People usually advice us to be strong during a loss, but they don’t realize the fact that crying is not a synonym of weakness and in fact, it is a sign of showcasing your true feelings. Usually people going through a loss tend to show different reactions. Some of them deny the fact that it has happened to them or may start finding out ways to clear the loss, whereas a few go into depression or start accepting it. In such cases, it’s better to turn to our friends and relatives who care about us and support us emotionally. However, while going through a period of grief, we should try as much as we can of not getting bogged down by grief. Do yourself a favor by reading through this article for famous grief/grieving quotations and sayings.
