“Grief, I’ve learned, is really just love. It’s all the love you want to give, but cannot. All that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go.” ― Jamie Anderson
Grief is just love with no place to go.
Because that individual’s not around anymore.
They can’t hear your words.
They can’t respond to your words.
You can’t express your love in any way that’s meaningful.
All that love that is inside you, in its pure intensity …
All the feelings that you have, and want to open up and share …
None of that is possible
There’s only silence now.
There’s no-one there to listen.
There’s only emptiness.
