Grief and Loss

“No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear.”  
–CS Lewis, A Grief Observed  

Loss can seem almost unbearable if we try to bear it alone – whether it’s loss of a loved one, a job or a phase of life.  

You may be wondering how you’ll find your way through the dark place you find yourself in. That place may be where a loved one once was, where your heart felt whole. It may be a place where transitions seem to threaten much of what had seemed stable or permanent.   

Can I survive this loss? 
When will this sadness end? 
Is it normal to feel this way?
Does it have to be this hard?

The wish for things to stay as they were is as natural as life itself. And yet, we’ve not found a way to hold onto everything we hold dear. We’ve simply found that it helps to know we aren’t alone when things are painful. Being in the presence of someone who cares makes pain more bearable. In therapy for loss whether it is loss of a job, a loved one or a treasured circumstance, you’ll learn to bear the sorrow and weather these endings until it begins to feel like spring again.
