When Relationships End, You Can Still Find Joy

relationshipsend

You can’t easily erase relationships. (Click to tweet) At least I can’t. Of course I’ve stayed in contact with a few, reveling still in those friends left behind. But, as we all know, it is never the same as being there.

That’s why heaven, which used to make me think of tedium, has become very precious to me. All those relationships left behind will forever be in the now. A conversation won’t have to travel through cyberspace because in heavenspace we’ll all be as near as a breath. (Click to tweet)

Still, I grieve.

Do you ever feel like you become good at grief? (Click to tweet) I feel like I’m an expert now. Grieving from one place to another. And still, I carry folks inside me. There are days when I still believe my paternal grandparents are alive, though they’ve gone ahead of me in death. All the one dimensional faces I counted as friends stay with me too. They’ve become a part of my grief. And my joy.

What do you think? How do you cope with ended friendships?
