“A New Normal”

Morphing
The prompt for today talked about how words take on new meanings over time. This is the phrase that came to mind when I read that.
Definition of normal usual or ordinary : not strange
If we use this definition how is it that we tell people after someone dies that they will have to find a new normal. There is nothing normal about grief. For me there has been nothing normal about my whole world turning upside down. It really is the most ridiculous phrase but then most of them are.
