YOUR HEART ACHES AS YOU WALK THE DIFFICULT PATH OF GRIEF AND LONGING
There’s a good chance that you feel emotionally overwhelmed. No one seems to understand how deeply you suffer, how you long for your loved one, how nothing in life seems to have purpose or meaning any more without them. You feel hurried by others to “find closure,” “move on,” and “find peace” – but how do you do that when your identity and heart are gone? On top of all this, you have to find some way to function in the world when all you can do, or feel you need to do, is shut down.
We accept and honor all of that – the defeat, the futility, the inability to imagine a future that seems remotely appealing or possible without your beloved. Grief counseling is meant to be a place where you tell us and show us all about your suffering and yearning as you also teach us all about your loved one.
It’s your space to be and feel just exactly as you are, and to be in the presence of hope that things will improve with time.
