Grief and Loss
Grief & loss
There are all types of losses. It can be a death, a break-up, it can be loss of health or an employment reversal, loss of a home or a way of life.
No matter what the cause, it can feel like life has turned you upside down, and you can’t figure out how to move forward. It seems like you’ve entered a strange land that is hard to describe to others. Our culture can be very hard on those experiencing grief, and sometimes it feels like you aren’t “allowed” to speak of these feelings, because others may have a hard time dealing with it. Plus everyone deals with loss and grief differently, and people often struggle with wondering if what they are feeling is “normal”.
All in all, it is a lonely and isolating place to be. It can be very helpful to have a place to talk about these feelings, sort them out, and try and make some sense of a situation that seems to make no sense at all. Putting things into perspective can be a step toward healing and reclaiming your life. Plus, it is healing to have someone listen without judgement or expectations, and being able to give helpful feedback.
You don’t have to take this journey alone.
“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.”
