of grief and growth
The ultimate goal of grief work is to be able to remember without emotional pain and to be able to reinvest emotional surpluses. While the experience of grief work is difficult, slow and wearing, it is also enriching and fulfilling.
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat - known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depth. These persons have an appreciation, sensitivity and an understanding of life, which fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern.
Beautiful people do not just happen. E. Kubler-Ross
