Grief is the price of love, If you were fortunate enough to love, the death of a loved one brings a depth of pain proportionate to your love. This loss is a truly heavy cross to bear. We must realize that we can survive the shock and trauma that initially accompanies death. However healing from the grief can take years, possibly an entire lifetime. Acceptance of a death doesn't mean you will stop missing your loved one. Rather acceptance is a part of the responsibility placed on us. Acceptance cannot be done for you, it is your undertaking. Over time it wont hurt as much or as often. Through acceptance you will gain wisdom and new perspective. Acceptance is painful lesson we must learn in order to evolve spiritually. Let go of the sorrow and hold onto the love is the best way to look at it.
Do you ever come to terms with the death of a parent? You will always miss them, need them but given time the crying lessens and the pain becomes manageable. Talk to them all the time even though they aren't there because they can hear you.
