I don’t mean to be pushy.
But there are some things I really wish other people understood about grief:
- It doesn’t have a time limit.
- It doesn’t conform to my expectations or the expectations of others.
- I can’t predict when it will overwhelm me.
- I am not going to apologize for grieving my son because I don’t apologize for loving him.
So, please, consider this Bill of Rights for Grieving Mamas.
