Why is grief so hard and constant? Why can't we just "get over it" like some people expect us to do? It is because grief involves many hidden losses that must be dealt with each day. Give yourself permission to grieve the:
* loss of SELF...
* loss of IDENTITY
* loss of CONFIDENCE
* loss of HEALTH
* loss of PERSONALITY
* loss of EMOTIONAL SECURITY
* loss of PHYSICAL SECURITY
* loss of FISCAL SECURITY
* loss of LIFESTYLE
* loss of DREAMS
* loss of GOALS
* loss of DESIRE
* loss of JOY
Part of your self-identify was formed by the relationship you had with the person who died.
You may have gone from being a "wife" to a "widow". Or from being a "parent" to being a "bereaved parent". The way you defined yourself and the way society defines you has changed. And that can hurt!
Tomorrow we begin the "heart" of this grief series. I will ask you to be honest and dedicated to the process. I know the process works, I have used it personally to find peace in the grief journey.
Grief can be complicated by circumstances and unfinished business. But we will be introduced to a method of finding comfort.
We are all grievers in this difficult journey. But there is hope.
Thank you for following and sharing this information with family and friends. I am excited about tomorrow. ⚘🙏💕⚘🙏💕
God bless you.
