I was sent a meme that said, if God took something from you that you couldn't imagine losing, just think of what he's bringing to you.
What an isupposed to say to that?
And my favorite: God wouldn't give you more than you can handle. So basically, my husband died because God knew i could take it? That's not any God i want to worship.
Death is the completion of the cycle of life for everyone. It is not separate. God doesn't take away from us- he teaches us that we are not capable with human understanding to know why things happen when they do or why but tells us one day ( in the hereafter) we will know and understand ( it all). It is enough to know the one who knows . Live by truth not by feelings which hurt and are often deceptive.
Most people want to comfort someone in grief and they said things that would comfort themselves. I am not religious and similar things were said to me. I realized they were just trying to comfort me. I have friends of different religions. I personally believe in the Golden Rule. It is very difficult when we lose people we love. Peace to all.
I, too, had someone say to me- "God doesn't give us anything more than we can handle". I replied- "Well, when GOD says it to me, I'll believe it. Until THEN, when YOU say it to me, I say "Shut up and leave me alone".
Was told that I should just "get over it and move on". Sad thing is that it was my late husband's father that said it. He claims that he was taking the death worse than anyone else even tho he never had a personal relationship with his son. Or grandkids.
Wow, that's harsh. My counseling told us not to take things like this too seriously, because it's going to happen. Easier said than done.
At almost 7 months since I lost my husband, someone asked me yesterday, "Do you still miss Dan?"
I just looked at her.
