Can grief become a light?
Can grief become a light that illuminates one’s path in life?
Ten years ago, I lost my partner of many years, in work and in life.
The loss of a dear person has two dimensions: grief and gratitude.
The joy that has filled my life over so many years in his company, shines through the grief and makes it transparent. There is no cure for grief. One must learn to live with it, like with a chronic illness. I am not the same I was before Torgeir’s death, never will be. But I am still able to sing and smile, feeling the presence of his absence following my steps for the rest of my path.
