"Choose a vocation you enjoy and you will never have to work again" - Marilyn Allen PhD
Loss/Bereavement can evoke very deep emotions in the sufferer. Such emotions can include:
- being easily irritated
- feeling lonely or alone
- going very deep into your own thoughts and having an existential crisis
- feeling anxious
- having confused feelings
- being scared
- sometimes relief that what you have lost is finally gone
- loss or increase of appetite
- lack of focus
- feeling rejected
If you have experienced a loss and are beginning to experience some of these feelings (it can sometimes take years for these feelings to manifest), do talk to someone, a professional or ring a Charity specialising in Counselling or Psychotherapy. They can support you in making sense of your feelings.
You will not heal overnight if you have deep wounds. You will have good days and bad days but do not despair. Take one step at a time... a mentally progressive step toward healing. It is better to heal gradually that assume that your journey will be over immediately. There is light at the end of the tunnel. Be patient with yourself.
Today is the day to reflect. It is almost half way through the year. Take stock. Adjust. Good luck.
Let food be your medicine and your medicine your food.
Take care of your body. It is the only place you have to live in!
