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.
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?
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.
