I am new to grief, my mom passed away not quite 2 months ago. I try and work through it by moving my body. I’m a runner….what I’ve noticed lately is that after every run I cry, I run, I cry. I’m so taken back by this. I feel as though I am doing the best I can, I talk about my pain, I see a psychologist, I do distract by shopping but the run/cry combo always catches me off guard. Maybe it’s guilt because she can’t run or walk this trail with me anymore. I don’t know! I wanted to share in case this is the same for others. ❤️
Thank you so much to Laura for this lovely submission. It is so realistic and an accurate portrayal of the ‘everyday-ness’ of grief.
