If Grief Comes With Love, Should We Not Love?

If in fact, grief comes with love, then should we shut ourselves off from joys of love?  I believe many have.  There are so many folks that try not to love again after losing someone they loved, but there are consequences to shutting out love.

griefI am sharing this quote from Allie Franklin  She writes, “The quote is from my mother, Darcie Sims, from prior to 1984. She was a bereaved mother and internationally recognized speaker on grief. She died unexpectedly in Feb 2014. If you google Grief is the Price we pay for love + Darcie Sims, you will find many of her published works.

Thanks for sharing her words. Many do not know where they came from. Please help me keep her name connected with her work. Thank you”

We are programed to love and be loved.  All of us probably know of children that didn’t receive genuine love as a child or even if they did, they feel like they weren’t loved.  Because of that, they probably never knew how to truly show love to another as well.  It could very well be one of the biggest contributors to sadness and pain in this world on many levels.

There Is The Argument That The Price Of Love Is Too High

Do you think the price is too high?  I know I have felt that way when losing someone I loved.  When the loss is fresh, I have vowed never to love again, but as you work through the grief and it changes a little bit, you realize love is necessary for a fulfilling life.   You realize that, although painful, you are able to work through it and come to place where you enjoy love again.  What do you think?
