more or less human

it seems that in life, there is much loss.

we each experience loss in our own way.

there’s no instruction manual on how to grieve and mourn
and many flounder when confronted with loss.

some face it head-on.
some ignore.

and many more in between.

some self-medicate.
some self-deny.

and many more in between.

there is difficult balance to maintain between acknowledging the loss
and not letting it incapacitate you.

some weep and wail.
some bite their lip.

and many more in between.

I say:
– feel it and know it
– embrace it and learn it.

you have a choice:
– allow the loss to make you more or less human.
