In it together

The first stage of grief is denial, and some people are still grappling with this. The degree to which we cling to our comforts, our routines, our prestige, our stuff, is the degree to which we will struggle with change. Getting from stage one of grief – denial – to stage 6 – acceptance – can be a slow and circuitous process. But it is made easier by becoming aware of our clinging and aversion, and recognising when we are living into the past or future at the expense of this moment.
