Losing someone is often heartbreaking and difficult to come to terms with. It is important to grieve but not to the extent that you are not living your own life. Focusing on what was created out of your relationship with who has gone is a useful way to help us remember the good things.
We should feel sorrow, but not sink under its oppression.
Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.
– Dr Seuss
You cannot stop the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can stop them nesting in your hair.
– Eva Ibbotson
There can be no deep disappointment where there is not deep love.
– Martin Luther King Jr
If the people we love are stolen from us, the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them.
– James O’Barr
It’s so much darker when a light goes out, than it would have been if it had never shone.
– John Steinbeck
A man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on.
– John F. Kennedy
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.
When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.
