Moving Forward In Your Life Journey

Grieving is your own path to moving forward in your life journey. It is taking it one step at a time. Sometimes (and frequently) you may feel on your way to moving forward on your journey through grief, but then take a couple steps back. This happens all along the way. It could be something you see, hear or smell that triggers a memory or a thought that seems to cause depression.

There are similarities in moving forward in our grieving, but grieving is your own path that is very much individualized. Everyone has their own path. In life, we will likely take many walks through grieving. Not all paths will be the same even for each individual. That makes it even more difficult for others who care about you to help you. They won’t understand, not totally, but they can at least know that you are hurting and be available to you. And you for them.

There are generally many emotions a grieving person will struggle with at any given time during their journey. It may be denial, depression, anger, fear, loneliness, despair, sadness and many more. You can experience more than one at a time, they may fluctuate for minutes, hours, days or weeks. You may feel you are coming out of the overwhelming sadness of your grief, then something triggers a memory and overwhelming sadness befalls you again.

It is important to remember that things can get better and to just keep walking the path. Your life story is ever changing, both happy things and not so happy things. Just keep walking. Keep confident that you will get through the grieving times. Of course, your life will not be the same. Each major life event does have an impact on your life journey. You will likely always have sadness around the loss, but it’s okay to move on. It’s okay to enjoy life again, the best way that you are able. So keep walking the path of grief, however long it takes for you. And as you take that journey, be sure you are also making a point of remembering and thinking about hopeful and positive things related to your loss. That will be easier to do as you go along, but not always easy, but it is helpful.

God’s word tells us that He is a God of all comfort. He can help you find peace and strength as you are grieving your own path to moving forward in your life journey.
