Be Careful What You Say About Yourself

Be Careful What You Say About Yourself


Maybe you are normally super productive, but since your loss you struggle to finish even one task each day. It is SO normal to struggle to finish everyday tasks during grief. Gently remind yourself that you are not a loser, you are grieving.

 

Maybe you are normally cheerful and bubbly, but since your loss you can't seem to muster up your old zest for life. It is SO normal to feel immense heaviness after loss, and you may have feelings of anger or grief. Gently remind yourself that you are not a dark cloud, you are grieving.

 

Maybe you are normally fiercely intelligent, but since your loss your mind is filled with fog and confusion. It is SO normal to feel dazed and disconnected after a loss. Gently remind yourself that you are not dumb, you are grieving.

 

Maybe you are normally a social butterfly, but since your loss you just need time alone. It is SO normal to need to withdraw from crowds of people after a loss. Gently remind yourself that you are not a hermit, you are grieving.

 

There are a million more ways that our lives change after loss, and many new “first” experiences after a loss. If you find yourself struggling with disdain towards your new self and your new life, this is your gentle reminder that you are not defective. You are grieving. And there is time and space and a soft place for you to land here, our beautiful friends.
