What is grief, if not love persevering

Was watching a scene in WandaVision episode 8, when Wanda was expressing her sadness losing her twin brother…

Wanda: It’s just like this wave washing over me again and again. It knocks me down and when I try to stand up, it just comes for me again. And I can’t… It’s gonna drown me.

Vision: No. No, Wanda.

Wanda: How do you know?

Vision: Because it can’t be all sorrow, can it? I’ve always been alone so I don’t feel the lack. It’s all I’ve ever known. I’ve never experienced loss because I’ve never had a loved one to lose. What is grief, if not love persevering?

The last line by Vision really got me – “What is grief, if not love persevering?“. People always see “grieving” as something “negative” they need to move away from. When, as the line said, it’s just an act for trying to hold on to the love as much as we can. Al-fatihah buat arwah atok dan wan ♥
