Though it's not something people love to discuss, grief is something we all face at some point in our lives. Having gone through vision loss and other things in my life, I have some personal experience with grief. In this video, I wanted to share four things that I've learned about grief.
Before you watch, remember, this is based on my personal experience. This isn't from a medical book or anything like that. These are just some things that I have noticed and has come up in other conversations. So, bear that in mind as you watch. Enjoy!
The first thing I've noticed about grief is that it is unpredictable. It can hit you at any moment and for any reason. And, it can happen for what seems like no reason at all. It might happen on an anniversary of something or a random Tuesday. But, expecting the unexacting is one of those things that really fits here.
I remember watching Rocky when I was a kid and thinking that boxers loved to punch people. And, as I've gotten older, I realize that they are fighting to win, so they keep on fighting. And, at times, it seems like grief is this way. It keeps coming at you. It doesn't care if you are having a bad day, if your house is flooded, if you kids are giving you trouble or if it the best day of your life. It just keeps on coming.
Grief, like most things, hits people differently. And, people deal with it differently as well. One person may struggle to get out of bed while another may throw themselves into work. But, regardless, as long as people are dealing with what is happening, there doesn't seem to be a right or wrong way.
Finally, grief hits everyone. It doesn't matter you age, race, culture, gender, orientation, religion or any other such thing. Loss happens to everyone at some point in their lives.
