Person: I was writing something to a friend earlier and I began by using the phrase “healing journey.” Since I don’t really feel as if I am healing from my son’s suicide just 6 weeks ago I edited the phrase to “grieving journey.”
These two phrases seem different to me:
Healing Journey and Grieving Journey
Do we grieve THEN heal, grieve AND heal, grieve even after we have healed, do we ever really heal? What do you think?
Alisabeth: I believe we heal through the grief. As we allow ourselves to feel the process we heal. I like “Healing Journey.” I refuse to label myself as a perpetually grieved mom. I will continue to heal till I join my son and daughter in heaven.
