When someone we love dies, then, we feel a gaping hole inside us. I have companioned hundreds of mourners who have said to me,
“When she died, I felt like part of me died, too.”
In what can feel like a very physical sense, something that was inside us now seems missing.
We don’t mourn those who die from the outside in; we mourn them from the inside out.”
Your feelings are the way you perceive yourself. They allow you to respond to the world around you and help you know you are alive.
If you shut them down-if you deny, repress, or inhibit them-you risk being among the “living dead.” If you lose touch with your feelings, you have no true awareness of life.
