Grief Lessens, But Doesn't Go Away

I'm happy to see the professional thought fixers recognize that there are things that alter or lighten but don't actually "fix."

" never get over loss. As time passes, the intensity of feelings about the loss will lessen"

"...grief is an emotion that sends a vague alert to help you to remember, rather than to forget. Even so, what most people do with grief is attempt to forget--to get over it--which is quite contrary to the purpose of the emotion. Rather than try to forget, one must attempt to remember and cooperate with what your emotion is trying to convey."

I like this view of grief as an alert to remember and cooperate with your emotion.
