Dealing with loss in a relationship could be devastating. Having lost someone you love cannot be expressed expressly through words. Nothing comes close. Nothing cuts deeper. There are different levels to loss that can’t be compared. There are those that come through breakups – and though these ones hurt really bad, there’s always a chance of recovering from them and moving on unto better-healthier relationships.
But the loss of a loved one to death is something that we never truly recover from. Losing my parents to cancer was and is still a traumatic experience for me. It’s a void only GOD can fill. Losing a spouse or someone you’ve been romantically involved with can take years to recover from – that’s if such a trauma can be recovered from, but people who are going through such difficult times need to be strong, not just for themselves, but for everyone around them. It’s hard, I know, but it’s possible.
Being strong doesn’t necessarily mean that we’re strong enough. It just means that we try to rise above difficult situations no matter how hard they may be. It’s okay to cry sometimes. It’s okay to be vulnerable and feel helpless. What’s not okay is when these feelings overwhelm us to the point where they become unhealthy and detrimental.
Staying strong in times of weakness is a strength that comes from GOD. I pray that there is healing in the hearts of everyone going through one form of loss or another.
