Subject: RE: BS: Bereavement
After our sister died there were times when the pain felt absolutely overwhelming--those were scary times. But as many here have already said, somehow I survived it and eventually it eased. Realizing that I was going through a universal experience helped, as did talking and crying with others who loved her. At those times when the pain and reality of her death were just too much to bear, I very consciously redirected my thoughts to something else, especially when I was alone.

Many of us hold you in our hearts, and many who love you are there to hold you up when you feel like you can't go on by yourself.

Peace and compassion,
