Healing …

Many different life events, challenges or changes can bear an emotional weight that’s difficult to process. Navigating through something that’s created a loss in our lives can be nuanced, complex and fluid.

Sometimes the path you determined you’d be treading veers off into a completely unknown direction; one that’s left you trying to figure out what this means for the future.

    1. I know many people can be a bit against going but these services can make all the difference. It’s not for everybody, but normalizing talking about getting therapy will hopefully make more people aware that it is a valuable option. Thanks for reading!

  1. I love this. Life is hard and we should embrace our feelings but not dwell on the negative for too long. Let the rain fall is the perfect way to look at it. Great post!

  2. Love this! I’m a firm believer that you have to allow yourself to feel your pain and then process those feelings in order to heal so the rain metaphor really appeals to me. Great list of resources as well, thanks for sharing!
