Debunking ~ In general, our society teaches that grieving over a pet can be a sign of weakness.
Feeling sad, frightened, lonely, or depressed all normal reactions. Crying doesn’t mean that you are weak. In fact, it takes strength to accept and engage with these difficult emotions when grieving over a pet.
Let yourself feel those emotions, physical sensations, and spiritual challenges that you are going through. There is a reason you are having these feelings. Plus, there is no reason why you need to feel that you have to “protect” your family or friends by being (supposedly) strong.
Showing your feelings when grieving over a pet will help you and may even help them. By showing your feelings, you are also debunking the first myth of being selfish. When you show your feelings, you are saying, “I have compassion for living beings.” And that, my friend, is extremely beautiful!
