“As long as there is love and memory, there is no true loss.”— Cassandra Clare
Human beings have an aversion for loss because it creates an emotional pain of separation from a loved-one or a friend or a co-worker. We don’t know how to react upon hearing the news that someone has died, but to only react in shock and surprise. We don’t live in a vacuum where we won’t experience some level grief of a co-worker whose loved-one has just passed away. Instead of denying the fact that we feel some pain inside, we can mourn and reflect also the passing and help our friends through these times of grief. And during our reflections we can recall our own experiences of loss in our personal lives. We can recall the love and memory of a loved-one in our minds alive and well, full of life in happy moments.
