If you have spent any time on our Facebook or Instagram, you have probably noticed that we don’t share grief quotes nearly as often as some other grief sites out there. It isn’t that we don’t like grief quotes, it’s just that the internet is already filled with zillions of images with quotes imposed on them, covering every topic under the sun. To be honest, they have started to feel a little… overdone? Dare I say, cliché?
Yet on Sunday, when I was feeling a little bummed out about the holidays, I got sucked into the black-hole of Pinterest. As I scrolled through grief quote images until my finger cramped, I found myself feeling strangely comforted. Something about reading other’s words about grief was reassuring, hence the tremendous appeal of grief memoirs I suppose. I love a good grief memoir, but some days a memoir is just too much. The grief quote comes in handy during those moments that you can’t concentrate to read more than a couple sentences (or a carry-out menu). A bite-sized option.
So, today, we are going to stop judging and jump on the grief-quote-bandwagon. Here is a round-up of some grief quotes we love, to keep you company when cracking a book just seems like far too much work.
Please note that most of these were found on social media. We have linked back to the original source, if it was linked. If you were the creator of one of these fabulous images and we didn’t know it, leave a comment and we will update!
