It’s okay, not to be okay. Many life events, both expected and unexpected, can awaken various emotions. Sometimes we may try to hide or brush off our personal health to “get on with our lives.” Loss, whether it be the result of a death, divorce, job, illness, or friendship, can cause grief that is often a lifelong process. Even though grief is not a tangible injury, if not properly cared for, it can become a deeper wound.
Having someone to work through these feelings with can create a beneficial connection that we all deserve as humans. Grief may not hurt as often as time passes, but that does not mean that it hurts any less. While working through grief and the many other emotions that can accompany it, such as anxiety, depression, and anger, we can learn how to heal in a healthier way. If just one piece of our puzzle is out of position, it can throw every other aspect out of place as well. We as humans are wired for connection, so what better way to work through life’s challenges than to join in with others.
I’m passionate about promoting the equality of mental health and physical health. The mind, body and spirit are all interconnected. Going to see your therapist should be just as normal as going to your doctor. I’m here to really listen. I want to know how you’re really doing. It would be an honor to play a role in your journey. You’re not alone, we’re in this together.
