Words of encouragement for families during grief. These are the messages that will help you get through the days when you are experiencing a difficult time, the whole world is falling down around you, and everything sucks.
When you just need a reminder that pain passes and you can get through this despite the great sorrow that has taken over your life… these words of encouragement and inspirational quotes will help you find comfort and remind you how tough you are (even when you don’t feel like it).
When my dad was diagnosed with Lung Cancer, we had no idea how this story would end. Unfortunately, after a 21-month battle that an army would be proud of finding comfort and peace became our day-to-day struggle.
Now, it’s like a blur. For almost two years our stress levels were at the absolute max, but we rose to every single challenge cancer threw at us (even when we could barely get out of bed) …
So, where do you even start trying to deal with the loss of someone who has been there for every part of your life?
The most important thing is you just do the best you can.
Life goes on around you and you do your best to participate. Talking with someone a family member or a close friend and getting some of this stuff off your chest will help.
Some days you can’t deal with any of it and that’s okay. You cry all day and you just can’t get it together.
Other days you feel a little better, it seems like you might be heading in a positive direction and there is hope that things will be okay again.
So naturally, you feel guilty about feeling any kind of hope for the future. Then out of nowhere… you see something, burst into tears and you’re right back to where you started.
The pain of grief can feel like a sign of weakness, but it’s really just the price of loss and of love. When you’ve experienced unconditional love and then have to go through the pain of losing that beautiful soul, it shatters your world.
Whether it’s losing your best friend, the loss of a father, or a series of losses, you have to deal with grief in your own way. And the grief process, well, let’s just say you have a long way to go before you’re done with that. Time is the only cure for grief. It’s going to be difficult today, and tomorrow, and the day after that for quite a while.
Each day is its own struggle.
The bad news is there are no “right words” that can be said to ease the pain of losing someone significant in your life. People will express their deepest sympathy, but there is nothing that will make it easier or make it less painful. People will try to help, but there is just nothing that will make it better, or make it go any faster.
You have to keep going. Even through the tough times.
Despite the deep grief, we have to wake up every morning and do the best you can. Believing that your loved one is in a better place can help you through times of grief.
These words of encouragement during grief helped my family during our hardest hours of grief that rocked us to the core.
I hope it does the same for your family.
