We grieve change, it does not have to be a death. We grieve the loss, or change, of anything valuable to us. Think with me for a moment. See if this makes sense to you.
You have experienced the heart-wrenching death of a loved one. Suddenly you become aware that you also lost your ability to think clearly and concentrate. Your ability to focus just disappeared. Your normal patterns of eating and sleeping have changed. It seems you snack your way thru the ...day and nap your way thru the night.
Moods will change in an instant. You may find you no longer have a "filter"... if you think it you say it!
Your dreams and plans have changed. In fact, everything in the future can seem very uncertain and distant. Motivation can be replaced with a lack of desire to do anything.
These are NORMAL responses to change and grief. Give yourself, and others, permission to experience these changes. Spread the word...it takes a lifetime. We will always be grievers, but by expressing our pain and emotions we discover the ability to mourn.
Share this important information with someone who is struggling after a life change or a loss. 🙏⚘🙏⚘🙏⚘🙏
