Grief is work for the soul! Whether your broken heart is from a death, a divorce, a move, or the loss of a friendship, Grief is the natural and normal reaction to significant emotional loss of any kind. There are over 43 losses that are considered grief. But there are also intangible examples of grief such as loss of trust, loss of safety, loss of faith and loss of health.
There are no absolutes in Grief – no reactions so universal that all people will experience them. As well, Grief is difficult to control or to hide.
Most of us have not been given the skills to deal with Grief. We have been taught how to acquire things, but have not been taught how to lose. So when we experience a loss, we truly don’t have the ability to deal with it appropriately. We keep hoping we will “get back to normal.” The problem is we have to find a “new normal.”
While Grief is the mix of emotions we feel inside, mourning is the expression of that Grief... and most of us are not comfortable with mourning.
We’ve been taught not to cry and if we are going to cry... then cry alone. We’ve been taught to replace the loss and be quick about it. We’ve also been taught that time will heal all wounds or keep busy and you’ll feel better in no time. Unfortunately, these are myths. And the Grief we feel inside just keeps hanging on.
Many of us try to ignore our feelings of Grief. We put it away and block our minds from acknowledging it. When we do this, we can become overwhelmed with the unexpressed feelings. This can even lead to breakdowns, depression and hospitalization.
The goal of Grief Recovery is to help you process the grief you are feeling, give you the tools you need, and provide you with a warm, caring, and supportive environment in which to do so.
Together we can focus on recovery from the emotional pain and heartache. Whether it is through a grief recovery method® outreach program, or a one on one session, you will find a companion on your journey through the difficult and oftentimes lonely wilderness of Grief, to help lead you to live life with a renewed spark, and to find a new meaning and purpose for your life.
