Making The Choice To Survive

three color doorsWhen we think about choice, we think about the mundane things in life, “What should we have for dinner…. Pizza or Chinese?” Or it’s the big things, “Should we buy a house or keep renting?” Rarely do we give thought to how we can choose anything we want and that it is in our choices that we succeed, excel, or even survive!
There are plenty of testimonials where doctors didn’t think a person would survive, but they did. Then the chatter begins about “their spirit” and “their will” and “their drive to fight.” In essence, they CHOSE to survive. They chose to fight… to pull themselves back… to not let go because they have more to do.
If you are someone grieving the death of your loved one, you too, must choose to survive. You choose to survive and move forward from the pain. What does that mean? It means you commit to doing the work for however long it takes. It won’t be easy. You will need lots of support. But ultimately, it is a choice to recover from the experience and survive.
