Mourning is, in the simplest sense, synonymous with grief over the death of someone…that is it’s definition, however u can mourn over many things. Death of a relationship,death of a friendship, death of who you once were and so on. Death, in meaning whatever life it once brought, no longer exists. Sometimes a person doesn’t have to die in order for u to mourn them, mourn what once was and what will never be. Outside of death, the worst kind of mourning is the loss of someone when they’ve moved on out of your life by choice and has a new life that you will no longer be a part of. When a marriage or relationship fails it doesn’t just affect the parties directly involved, everyone hurts, everyone feels the loss. They go on with their new life, with new people and we sit back and just have memories to hold onto. It’s okay, it’s part of life. It’s part of growth and mourning is the beginning of healing and healing starts with letting go, so go ahead and grieve.
