Good Grief

5 thoughts on “Good Grief”

  1. Having had suicidal ideations, myself, it isn’t difficult to see why you are interested in the subject of grief. Grief is present wherever there are suicidal ideations. However, it is the thing or things that caused the grief in the first place, that determines each individuals response. Some choose suicide for the obvious reason that they believe their death will remove them (permanently) from the source of grief. These people probably do not have a strong belief in the afterlife so do not fear any possibility of punishment for killing themselves. I believe in a merciful God and that all of my sins have already been paid for by Jesus Christ. He took my punishment. So, what have I to fear in death? At most, an unhappy Father who will welcome home a disobedient child. However, I am in a state of depression right now, so I would feel this action to not be pleasing to God, and I do want to please Him. But, when I am suffering from major. depression, I am unable to reason and to purpose to do the right thing. I hope this helps give you at least a little more perspective. I enjoyed the post. Very insightful.

    1. Food for the Journey… thank you for sharing your perspective. Every person is so unique! I’ve seen belief systems that help some people can be harmful to others. I’ve also found yoga and mindfulness can be powerful aids in combating depression, gaining valuable insight, and finding peace in the present moment. It’s so important to learn your own mind and reach out for help when necessary. May love and strength be yours.
