Discovering A Pal in Grief

Friendship improves happiness and abates distress, by the doubling of our pleasure and the dividing of our grief.  ~ Marcus Tullius CiceroA reader writes: Marty, I simply wished to jot down and thanks to your Grief Therapeutic Dialogue Teams web site. It has been 6 months since I misplaced my horse, Domino. I do know you latterly heard from my good friend, Anita, who misplaced her canine shortly after I misplaced Domino final August. Though Anita lives in Canada and I reside within the States, we’ve got developed an exquisite friendship by way of electronic mail and phone calls. 

Again once I first misplaced Domino, I purchased an audio tape referred to as Journey By means of Pet Loss by Deborah Antinori. On the tape she talks about her little canine who died. She mentioned that she got here to appreciate that each Yoko’s life and dying had been a present. On the time I used to be listening to this excellent, useful tape, I could not think about how Domino’s dying might ever present me with a present. However it did. That reward was my good friend Anita whom I “met” in your web site’s message board. 

They are saying distress loves firm however what distress actually loves is somebody who really understands what you’re going via as a result of they’re going via the very same factor. As Anita and I wrote emails forwards and backwards, and talked on the cellphone, you may see us evolve. Quickly we weren’t speaking solely about our departed pets, we had been telling one another about our lives and our pursuits. 

Now there is not a time once we discuss on the cellphone the place we aren’t hysterically laughing in some unspecified time in the future or one other. It feels so good to snort! Anyway, I simply wished you to know the way a lot your web site has accomplished for me, and to thanks. 

My response: My pricey, how beautiful to listen to from you!

For that you’ve my heartfelt sympathy.
