It’s a big, hard, messy emotion.
It can make you feel a nagging heaviness that weighs you down. You feel it the minute you wake up and you’re aware of it as your head rests on your pillow at night. It gives rise to moments during the day when waves of really big, hard emotions crash over you and you don’t know if you want to burst into tears or scream into a pillow.
Grieving is a process that often feels like “two-steps forward, one-step back.” It can feel like you don’t have time for grief. Life is too busy so it’s easier to push those emotions down and out of the way, hoping that they’ll disappear if you just stay busy enough.
But, here’s the thing…
Those really hard, big, messy emotions are coming up for a reason. They’re coming up to be acknowledged, addressed, and processed. They want you to pay attention. When you don’t, the signals get louder - fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, pain, panic attacks are all manifestations of unprocessed emotions.
Give yourself a safe space and scheduled time to sort through the grief.
I’m leading a free 30-minute workshop on April 13th where you’ll learn the 5 stages of grieving, identify the stage you’re in now, and create a plan to move forward with self-compassion.
All this in a safe space and facilitated by a trusted guide with experience in grief & the mind-body connection.
