Do you ever feel like your grief will never go away?

The truth is it probably won’t however, the intensity and harshness of the edges may soften. In my experience as time went on, the tears still fell but not as often and when they did, they didn’t last as long. During the first year after losing my son it was literally hard for me to breathe. I had to consciously focus on taking a deep breath or I felt I would suffocate. Later breathing once again became more natural. Still years later, I feel this emptiness that is impossible to describe within my heart. It’s like I’m hollow with nothing inside of me. The feeling leaves me vulnerable and helpless but passes through me within a few minutes and I once again feel my heart fill up with love. Remember, we grieve because we love!
