Separating Good from Grief

It’s been difficult to separate the grief from the good things in the last year.

Some of it is worrying about “how can I be happy, in any moment, when a central person in my life is no longer around” and I also worry about not honoring my mom, because there’s a really visceral attachment to the grief too. The fear is that if I move on or don’t feel overwhelming grief that I’m starting to lose the memory of my mom, and that is really scary.
