Grieving 101

We learn how to grieve and learn from our grief.

Grieving 101

Grieving 101 is the class
no one wants to take.
Unfortunately for all of us,
this class is a requirement,
not an elective.
The homework is hard.
It has to be to help you
learn to live without
someone who has been
an essential part of your life.
The instructor is difficult,
presenting new challenges daily
while dredging up memories and emotions.
The workload is time-consuming
and, early on, it may be
totally engrossing.
Despite the difficulty,
the class teaches
more than you expect and
makes you grow in ways
you never imagined.
You also come to understand
that this class is the prerequisite
to Grieving 102.
