Very long ago, I was taught that the passage of time heals all wounds. I believed this until tragedy overtook me. During and after the very harsh experiences, I also learned what Rose Kennedy is quoted as saying above. Why do some of us fare better than others when life's journey brings crisis and tragedies? I know people who will only focus on happy, beautiful things. Are they the ones who do better than most with life's travails? I know those who choose to be realistic. Are they the ones who fare better in hard times? Who is to say what level of attitudes will be the best for us while grieving? Some work like they are possessed in order not to have time to think. Others drown themselves in food, alcohol, drug addictions, constant travel, etc. Some study certain spiritual paths in order to feel happier. And a small portion of our population even makes believe that everything is merely an illusion so we need not feel anything at all.
Please write and tell us what works positively for your own life when trials and tribulations occur? Thank you for your wisdoms. Love RubyNorma *o*
