Grief

Grief…

The pain of a loved one gone

A life cut short perhaps before his time

I could only hug her

She found him

We cried and prayed

Months, years later it hurts… still

"Everyone else seems to have gone on with life” she laments

“I haven’t”

We talk continued leaning in to support systems …

And asking for what you need

She recants hurtful words that challenge her to speed up her grieving process

I hold my peace

She agrees to occasional check ins

Simple calls to say I care…

This is a “check in” post

Please “check in” on those who’ve lost loved ones

Sometimes they are STILL not okay

A simple text saying “I’m thinking of you today”

A talking emoji to cheer

A voice note

An email

A virtual hug

Something that communicates care!

If you’re not sure, ask them!

Ask them to help you help them!

Let the healing continue.


In health,
Dr. Olabintan
