Seeking Help with Grief Is Not a Sign of Weakness — but an Act of Courage!

Horse taking a stand in a field of yellow flowersGrief is a vulnerable time — and it’s easy to be swayed by guilt. We think we should be stronger than we feel and more self-sufficient than we are. When we don’t live up to our own expectations, let alone anyone else’s, we feel guilty and incapable. Before we realize what’s happening, we can fall into a negative downward spiral when we’re under such pressure.

Treat yourself gently when you’re facing grief! The grieving process may be the hardest thing you  have ever done. And when you’re tempted to be too hard on yourself, remember what you’re going through.

No one should try to face grief alone.
