This was affirming for me as well. Watched it twice. There were several TED Talks about grief however this one is THE one to listen to.

This was such an affirmation for me on this day.  After having lunch with colleagues, and being told I'll get better ( once again ), it so confirmed what I've said over and over to others ; don't try to fix it, be there to witness my grief and listen to my story.  Thank You so much Kelly.

That was wonderful.  I may have to change my schedule so I can sit in on her presentation next month.

Well said, thank you. You hit the nail on the head for me. I want to shout to most people who tell me these things that Steve and I are not done. I still love him more with each passing day he does not wake up next to me. I feel like people want to push you to just move on... I was married to my best friend who loved me like no other and always made me feel safe for 20 years. He died suddenly and I never got to say goodbye or tell him that he was the best part of my entire life! We were like one and without him I am not whole. Just getting up everyday and facing them without him takes all my heart and soul. Some times I catch myself bargaining for him and my two big dogs who passed away the year after Steve to just come and get me.

This site is the best! Thank you for letting me vent. All the thoughts of all the people on this site just hit my heart and make feel not so crazy. We are all normal with how we really feel, but most people do not know what say when we tell them how we really feel.

Thank you, thank you.
