grief:part one

In reply to a friend's email today I wrote:

Grief isn't a linear journey, it takes twists and turns a little like a game of Snakes and Ladders. On good days I feel quite normal skipping through the day, on others I feel like I'm sliding down the snake to somewhere I whizzed past weeks ago. Then there's the long climb back trying to regain the ground I'd lost.

Not sure if today will be a ride on a Snake or a Ladder.

Or both.

mindfulness: 1

Thought for the day.

Other people can't hurt me but my expectations of them can.

Most people are consistent in their actions. If you feel someone "always" lets you down, it's not their fault - they're being consistent. It is our expectation that they will act differently this time that wounds us.
