Navigating your way through...
Our society does not handle grief very well.
There are an abundance of restrictions put on us about how to grieve. So many well-meaning people saying the most hurtful things…often starting with the words “at least”.
There are many types of loss. Death and divorce are the most obvious; however, grief is in no way
limited to those.
Within your occupation you may be dealing with grief and loss in some way.
For example :
And so many more, have all been in the presence of people who are grieving, and are grieving themselves.
Care for the Caregivers is very necessary.
Every individual’s loss is different, valid and important to them. It does not serve to compare losses, or feel that your loss is not as significant as someone else’s. It takes courage to take the steps to healing…to identify and work through your loss in a safe, compassionate and validating environment.
