Some say that grief purifies the mind and the heart.
Did you know that emotional tears – tears of grief or tears of joy – are different than reflex tears? When you cry out of sadness, those tears contain a higher percentage of protein-based hormones than tears caused by irritants.
I say that if grief doesn’t take you down, then it will eventually take you Up. (And while allowing the sadness to flow through, it is helpful to do what you can to Gratitude Up and Happy Up. See my previous post “StarFire Teja’s Three Tips to Help You Gratitude Up”)
