I came across this in a booklet and thought it may bring some comfort.
Grief is a bit like a mountain on a journey. While you are very close to the death it is all you can see, just like when you are close to the mountain it fills your view. As you get further away the mountain is not any smaller, but you have a broader perspective. It is not the only thing you can see any more. Right now your grief is probably like that mountain up close; It feels massive and overwhelming and as if it is all you will ever see. Give yourself time. You won’t forget the person, but in time you will regain the ability to see other things as well as the mountain.
Much love to you all. x
