Grief is associated with death - but also ANY losses; Relationships that we wish were 'different, better or more'.

  • Grief is the normal and natural reaction to loss of any kind.

  • Grief is the conflicting feelings caused by the end of or change in a relationship or life event.

  • Whatever we feel is fine - but it's what we do with our feelings that is important.

  • Without tools we tend to repeat what we have been taught.

  • Many will tell us 'don't feel bad', etc. which is well-intended but NOT helpful.

  • Grief includes death but also divorce, infertility, bankruptcy, retirement, loss of trust and more.

  • Incomplete relationships and grief can dictate fearful choices and isolation.

  • Likely we all have been socialized to believe that these feelings are abnormal and unnatural.

  • Recovery from loss is achievable by a series of small and correct choices by the griever.

  • Completion allows you to live in the present, look forward and enjoy life again.

  • Recovery is not about forgetting, it's about processing the unsaid things that keep us stuck, going in circles.

  • The Grief Recovery Institute® website has additional resources.
