If Dee's Walls Could Talk

If Dee's walls could talk, I would move out immediately, but you'd want to move in! I have an opinion, and I'm not afraid to use it! Be sure to view older posts if you haven't stopped by in a while!

Good Grief



It’s a sucky thing.  It even looks weird when written. (Did you notice that alliteration?)

It’s deep. Too deep.  So deep.  But it’s unavoidable.  I don’t like to grieve.  Who the hell does?


A lot of people avoid it.  They bury it deep down inside and it usually eeks out in other harmful ways.


A lot of people get stuck in grief.  They wallow in it, and life becomes a never-ending pity party.


A few, superhuman people, embrace it and go through the stages naturally.


Me, I’m an avoider.  I work to avoid the pain.  I help other people, and volunteer my time.  I read, and entertain, and talk on the phone.  I keep living.  But not really.  I just have a need to keep moving.

I learned, though.  Or, I grew up.  I think that I just pray more.  Yep, that’s it.  I tried reaching out and being more vulnerable in relationships and friendships.  Didn’t work for me so much.

So, I talk to God.  All the time.

I pretty much just cry when I need to, laugh and remember the happy times, and move forward one teeny weeny step at a time.

Grief isn’t bad.  It’s just a necessary part of life.

Some grief is good, and some is bad.

How do you deal with grief?
