Tears of Loss

When faced with the loss of someone or something special, we are overwhelmed with extreme sadness. As a natural outlet, we break down into tears as we mourn over our loss. Yes, even the strongest of men can go through these moments.

Tears of Loss

To cry out these tears, is very healthy and therapeutic while we grieve over the loss and recover from it. To survive and move forward with our lives. Never forgetting, but rather growing from the experience.

With every tear drop, life memories fall from our head. The best of times, the worst of times, and even the possibilities of life after the loss. Life is present in every tear. In our mourning, we honor the relationship that once was.

As we recover, we turn to hope. Not in hope of filling the new emptiness, but in hope for new relationships and new memories. Learning from our past mistakes and successes to establish even greater connections with our current and future relationships.

The next time you find yourself shedding tears, remember the life in each drop. Life in yesterdays and hope for tomorrow.
