When you are grieving, sometimes you need to apply the brakes...so that you can #BreakTheSilence of what you are going through.
Most of the time people do not know what to expect from themselves. You may judge yourself, or expect more from your core.
Instead of dismissing your own emotions, honor what you are feeling so you can being the healing.
If you are angry, then honor it. I yelled at my Dad at the cemetery a few days after his funeral. I chewed out my brother at the funeral home before everyone else got there. I was angry because I wanted them to still be here.
If you are sad, then honor that. They were a part of your life and they still can be in your memories of them. There comes a time when those memories will stop being painful reminders they are gone. The memories become fond ones of times when they were here.
Do not judge yourself or let anyone else judge you for not grieving enough or too much, or taking too long to "get over it" because they did it another way.
Brake pads on vehicles stop us from moving forward. Breaks in our lives can do the same if we let them.
Brake pads also release when needed so that we can move forward. So to breaks in our lives. They release us so that we can move on.
