The Truth About Grief Myth #6: Keep Busy

Many people have nearly worked themselves into exhaustion trying to stay busy so they wouldn’t feel the pain that was the normal and natural by-product of the loss that affected them. I know the primary reason that the myth of keeping busy persists is because it is linked to Grief Myth #4, that Grief Just Takes Time or Time Heals All Wounds.

Those feelings get tucked away, buried out of sight, but are still affecting you even if you are not aware of what’s going on under the surface. It’s bad enough that the idea of keeping busy is so tied to the false idea that the passage of time can heal anything, but it’s magnified by connection to Grief Myth #1, Don’t Feel Bad.
