I mentioned this in a previous post, but in the weeks after losing Chaz, I used to spend my evenings reading quotes on Pinterest about death and grief, while sobbing my eyes out the entire time. I don’t know if it was therapeutic for me or if it was just what I needed to do at that time. But either way, that’s what I did!
When I told my therapist about it, she said that it was completely fine. There is no “right way” to grieve. And she told me that eventually the quotes I preferred to read would change…
Of course, she was right.
Sometimes I think that change is just because I’ve read every single quote out there about grief and loss. At least, it feels that way!
But like I was told, I now tend to prefer inspirational and motivational quotes. I’m getting to a point where I am able to relate to those more. And I’m pretty sure my therapist would say that it shows “growth.”
Don’t get me wrong, I can obviously still relate to the grieving quotes, and I will have a good cry-fest because of them. But now I spend more time reading motivational quotes.
So, I figured I’d start out this Monday by sharing some inspirational quotes to help us all get through the week! And don’t forget to take a look at the other blog posts in the Make a Difference Mondays Linkup below for even more inspiration!
