Losing a Loved One

When death touches us, expected or not, it brings a Tsunami of emotions with it. 

It rips us apart and throws bits of us up in the air that we didn’t even know existed.  Eventually, everything is stuffed back inside, not quite in the same way as before.  We are left with an invisible scar. 

Our wound bleeds, unnoticed by others, at various times of the year.  Christmases and birthdays.  Holidays, because we’d usually send a look-at-us-having-fun-selfie.  And every time you reach for the phone.

When it feels too much, take just one hour at a time.  That’s all.  Eventually you will manage the whole day that most people seem to suggest.  One hour.  One task.  One thought.  One tear.  One breath.  The floods will disperse.  You will be able to pick your way back to a normality. 

Life Coaching can help you return to a sense of normality, recognising the importance of your loved one and honouring the relationship. Phone or text Annie on 07393 722129 to talk.
