When you’re grieving
It’s hard to get through your day when you’re grieving. It’s important to remember that you’re not alone.
When our world implodes, we have to put one foot in front of the other and go on. But what happens when we can’t?
You are not alone.
Let me help you through this difficult time
Work with me
Coping with grief is difficult. Let me help you.
Coping with grief is a huge challenge, but reaching out for support can be an effective way to manage the pain as you move through the grieving process.
Talking to me, a compassionate listener who has dealt with my own loss, could be the first step in navigating your grief in a healthy way and adjusting to a different way of life.
When my own world fell apart I didn’t know I was grieving. I felt angry and depressed, some days I felt invincible, some I was in ‘self-destruct’ mode and others I couldn’t cope with the most simple and mundane tasks.
I didn’t want to talk, I felt I shouldn’t cry and I certainly wanted to avoid the elephant in the room. I made my life and my family’s lives a nightmare with my erratic behaviour.
My GP prescribed antidepressants and referred me to a counsellor. The counselling sessions made me feel worse than I did beforehand, I felt judged, like I needed to justify my behaviour and see what I was doing wrong.
In fact there was nothing ‘wrong’ with me, I was experiencing a natural response to loss and all I needed was time to grieve and to allow the process, but I didn’t understand that at the time and it seems the ‘professionals’ I went to for help, didn’t either.
The things that helped me the most were immersing myself in art, craft and creative experiences, allowing my mind to rest, switch off from the constant thoughts and commentary running through my head. And, talking to people who had been in a similar position, had walked the walk and understood the feelings that were crippling me, who held space for me to cry without judgement or allowed me to stay silent if that’s what I needed. They helped me to realise what I was experiencing was completely normal and part of the process of finding peace with my new reality.
You don’t need to be fixed…
