HOW DO I DEAL WITH MY LOSS AND BEREAVEMENT?
How does the heart respond when loss occurs…..when emptiness floods the
soul…….and pain is unending? When all around you seems to be slipping
away…….when holding tight and holding fast seems to be beyond your
grasp? …..How do you look forward, when no forward seems to be around
you, and there is nothing fast to embrace to warm your heart?
How, when the loss of a treasured and sacred loved one, a child, a mate, a
pet, or one’s blessed health,…….how do you even let yourself dream of
recovering……of returning to a semblance of what life was? Or, do you
let yourself shatter and close down, turning away from the warmth and
outreach of others, feeling the hopelessness, the lonliness and emptiness
of a heart full of bereavement?……it sometimes seems so impossible,
doesn,t it?…….that the spirited and cheerful part of your soul could
come alieve once again, and breath the joy, and restfulness of a heart,
returning to life, returning to love?
Loss is often felt with anger as well as aguish …….you may wish to
turn away from and admonish others for hos they have disappointed you, for
how they have let you down……for how they have hurt your feelings and
not listened, to the whispers of your heart and the echoes of your core?
