    Dear Visitor/seekers:
    I am posting this here because there seems to be no other place to leave it.

    IMO, Grief is the single most difficult and troublesome issue in most societies and especially in the USA where many of us were never adequately taught how to process our grief when a love one (or pet) dies or leaves us. We are taught to tough it out, keep smiling, don't feel that way, you're a baby and all sorts of messages that are saying: STOP THAT - YOU'RE BOTHERING EVERYONE! What these 'bothered' folks are really saying is that your grief and tears might TRIGGER the painful, touchy feelings inside of them that they are desperately trying to hold down and DENY and then they, like you, might also start weeping and raging too and that would be just too embarrassing and shameful for them.

    Grief is a very tricky process to work through and many books and videos, etc. have been dedicated to explaining grief and showing folks how to process it in safe and successful ways. Here's just one source of Grief information: http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/381351490436

    Rather than go into this subject more deeply right now, I have posted a piece about Grief over here so look it up if you want to understand Grief and how to handle it in your self or others.

    It may surprise you to learn that being angry with a departed love one, as well as sad, is both normal and OK as demonstrated in this remarkable video that had me weeping as well! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ntH0fEKXco

    Dear Seeker: This video might help you a lot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YumDBDWzyh8
    and the link can connect you with a lot of other beneficial videos and links. good luck.

    Here's a book that might resolve many if not most of your grief issues, try it: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fro...book+II.TRS0&_nkw=emmanuel's+book+II&_sacat=0

    Great post Jim, and I totally agree with all of it

    Grief is my single biggest problem by far, but it's not necessarily related to a dead loved one

    Not getting what I wanted, basically

    Life did not live up to my specific ideal. Not even close.
