Transforming Grief & Allowing Hope
Grief is inherent in being human, yet we do almost everything to avoid it. Suffering is created when we lose our attachment to something or someone. There is an ending, and then there is a longing.
Grief can touch all aspects of our lives and profoundly impact us physically, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, financially and socially.
Loss can take many forms, from the death of a loved one to the loss of a job, a marriage, a home or a dream.
Grief is real regardless of the type of loss. There is no hierarchy or greater grief. Pain is pain and real for the person experiencing it.
There is no right way to grieve.
Loss can threaten our sense of safety and security. When this happens, the way we see the world has been disrupted.
Our minds and bodies are processing so much information consciously and subconsciously; if we don’t stop to feel, the emotions can become buried and manifest in real health concerns later.
Allowing yourself to feel the pain and sadness that comes with losing attachment is essential. You are human, and grief is a part of the human experience. Know that your strength will come from your vulnerability in feeling your feelings.
Non-death loss can be just as devastating, and an accumulation of loss can weigh heavily and prevent us from having a good quality of life.
It can be hard to imagine a fulfilling life after loss; therefore, it is essential to recognize and acknowledge these losses and to seek help if needed.
