DAY 3 - The Beauty of Grief


Clouds come floating into my life
no longer to carry rain or usher storm,
but to add color to my sunset sky.
Rabindranath Tagore

There are some aspects of grief that can be positive, even beautiful. Remembering the positive qualities of our loved one. Allowing for vulnerability to be supported by others. Noticing and feeling tender or empathic toward others who are grieving.

Because suicide is so stigmatized, suicide loss survivors often feel as if their ability to experience or notice the beauty of grief has been taken away from then. 

The Lighting Up The Sky blog supports the right of all suicide loss survivors to honor their loved ones.
