“The closer we are to someone and the deeper our bond of love, the longer it will take for our emotions to adjust and mend from the awful wound of death. This is why those who aren’t as close to the person who died may wonder why it is taking you so long to recover … Time does not heal, but it does take time for our wounded emotions to adjust and adapt—much longer than for our minds. Waiting for our feelings to catch up with our knowledge requires patience.”
