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. It’s okay to feel lost, grief stricken or scared, but don’t allow yourself to dwell within something that could become immovable.
Being ready for healing to begin means we need to acknowledge and accept that things in life have changed; this can sometimes feel like an insurmountable task. There will come a time, however, when we reclaim our place within all that has shifted. By honouring our feelings, we take a step towards restoration.
