Has your life been impacted by
... a death, divorce, job loss, a health crisis or a romantic break up? Or perhaps you're experiencing heartache caused by any of the other 40 different kinds of loss. Regardless, the pain from experiencing a significant loss can be life-altering.
Have you ever heard the expression "Friendly Fire?" Sometimes well-meaning people, often those closest to us, say things that are unhelpful and hurtful in an attempt to be supportive. I bet you've heard “you have to just let go” and “move on,” but these well-meaning people have no idea of exactly how you are supposed to do so.
Myths that Don't Help!
Many have never been taught how to navigate the grief they experience from loss, nor how to heal their emotional pain. Culturally, we have been taught to avoid the pain with a variety cliche's - but they don't help. Perhaps you've heard:
- Time heals all wounds
- Get over it and move on
- You have to be strong
- Replace the loss
- Keep busy
These approaches only serve to distract us temporarily, leaving us feeling like we have to pretend we're okay, feeling isolated, and having still not dealt with the pain.
Loss Takes its Toll
Experts tell us that grief from loss is cumulative. It keeps building with each significant loss. The pain of loss can be experienced in a variety of ways. You might experience general exhaustion (mental and physical), feeling numb and lonely. You may experience difficulties concentrating, changes in eating and sleeping habits, or feel like you're on an emotional roller coaster.
The good news is that there is a way through. There is a way that you can journey through the pain of loss. It’s never too soon or too late to begin your journey of healing your heart.
