Kübler-Ross: The reality is that you will grieve forever


The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not "get over" the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same nor would you want to.

  --Elisabeth Kübler-Ross (1926-2004), with David Kessler (1959- ). If you know the source of this quotation, could you send it to me?
