Smiles

I'm all smiles again. My bout with grief was intense, but brief. I wondered if dumber people have an easier time with it than I did, because I found the whole affair acutely illogical. That being said, after initially deciding to cower, I used the history of my logic to instead to face my demons, which turned out to be instrumental in alleviating them. After, you know, a short period of even greater intensity. Nonetheless, success!

Grief's shadow remains upon me, however - a reminder to be ever vigilant.

Good for you. I admire you’re ability to come back.

I seem to be on the opposite end of the spectrum. Have you ever watched one those National Geographic Video where a young quadruped is trying to climb out of a muddy river?

My grieving process, a character flaw, seems to be like that. It takes a long time of getting up, taking a few messy steps, then falling back down to start again before I process it all. Looking for what I can tune. This might explain why I’m emotionally unavailable for years at a time after a breakup with someone I gave a damn about or examine the life of a deceased loved on like a hobby before I’m at ease with the idea that they’ve left.

As you implied grief’s shadow waits.

Thanks. I don’t think how my mind ‘handles it’ is particularly healthy so I have spent some time on the why. There’s such a thing as standing on the edge too long.
