Managing Grief: Not An Impossibility

Not because you lost the use of your legs or your eyesight, hearing, or the ability to remember your past, does not mean you are not the same person.

Some incidents in our lives are truly tragic that it may seem impossible to recover, not become the same person we once were, but there are many ways of hurdling these difficulties and eventually we will move on and become who we always were.
