Grief

There was a time if I viewed a suicide or attempted suicide in a movie, I would be struck with grief. An event like that would bring to mind my son David's suicide so strong, that I could barely stand it.

But time has passed. It is coming on to six years after that terrible day. This morning I watched a movie which showed an attempted suicide in a forest setting. Same kind of setting as David chose for his last moment on Earth. And guess what? I was hardly bothered at all by that movie scene. Wow!

It seems that the passage of time heals even terrible wounds to the soul.

  1. At the time of any bad event you think you will never heal, never get over it. People tell you .. give it time and you think to yourself, yeah right!! But time does heal, thankfully, never forgotten, but we do heal. And that is a very good thing.

  3. I am so glad you have weathered and allowed time to heal what it can. Many of us followed along your journey and grieved vicariously with you and it is good to get this report. Thank you for sharing even though many in your family object. You will never know the impact you have had on many people. Blessings on you.

  4. Healing is often acceptance as it relates to suicide. I lost a brother in 1999 and my daughter in 2010. I know what it's like to recover from such tragic events. Not a day passes when I don't think of them both, but now I can do it and smile refecting on all the good memories. I will never fully understand how they got to that point in their lives, but honestly I no longer need to know, I accept and will live with their decisions....

  5. I know the pain. I am downsizing in anticipation of a move to a more mobile (RV) lifestyle and have my wife's items boxed in the garage. I go into them every few months thinking I can downsize but I just can't get to that point. Ugh! So much pain in every thing I touch. I am so glad to hear that eventually you can move through that. God Bless!

    1. Dear ca93065,

      A loss such as yours with your wife is a "one day at a time" thing at the beginning. Don't push your moving until you are ready.

      There is plenty of time to begin your new RV lifestyle.

      God bless you!

      Bye for now,
      George
