You’ve always been reflective – that’s the way you’re made. You know everything’s connected, but not in the flaky, airy way: more the quantum physics, call and response sort of way. Life has been full of learning and change, self-reflection and growth. But this. This new thing in your life that came sideways and from seemingly nowhere: how are you supposed to deal with this?
Not only are you in pain from the actual grief, but you’re having a hard time finding anyone who sounds like you. You end up either defending your pain or explaining yourself. No wonder you feel exhausted, dispirited, and, at a time you can least afford it: even more alone.
You want someone to start from where you are. You need some practical tools to help you stay in your heart, and not lose your mind.
