The Journey of Grief

We have all suffered a loss of some sort, and other than the loss of a loved one we are never really taught how to deal with loss. We are expected to, and always think it is best to move on and get over it, but a loss plain and simple is a loss and it’s painful. 

In most societies we are expected to grieve over the loss of a loved one, but what we are not taught is that a loss of any kind whether it is the loss of a job, a home, a relationship, or a loved one that loss requires time to grieve and to heal. It is impossible to move forward and be the best you can be in your next job, home, or relationship if you have not dealt with your emotions properly. You have to understand the good that came from the experience and the necessary changes that need to be made for you to do better in the future.

It is important that you know you are doing yourself a great disservice if you don’t take the time to grieve your losses. Just like we take time and care to say good by to our loved ones it is important that we take the time and care to properly say goodbye to our old situations so that we can show up complete and ready to put in the best that we have to give in our new situation.

When we take the time to properly say goodbye, heal, and put things in perspective we are able to reflect on the good that came from the past experience and not the pain that came with the loss.

Do you allow yourself to grieve?

Love and blessings in divine order,
