Romantic

Maybe it was a marriage that ended in divorce, or one that simply drifted apart; or maybe it was an old high school relationship that held significance in your heart. Even short-term romances can leave a broken heart causing one grief and inability to move forward. 

Any CHANGE

Did you know that changes in one's life can create a loss, even if that change is positive? A job promotion, marriage, graduation or even moving to a new place can create grief from the changes in one's new routine.

Pet Loss

Pets get to live alongside us experiencing much of our day-to-day lifestyle. The sudden absence of a close companion, though not human, can certainly cause substantial grief, even years past. 

Have you found yourself weeks, months, years or even decades later still grieving?

 

You may find yourself unhappy or unable to "move on" from a recent or distant loss. This can feel like pretending to be happy all the time around coworkers or friends or family. It may feel like you're not allowed to talk about memories before the loss. It may feel like not being able to cry or talk about the one you miss with others. You may think about someone you lost every single day and think that's too much. You may not think about that person one day and feel guilty for it. Many of these reactions and feelings are signs of unresolved grief. Not dealing with grief can make it difficult to live an ordinary life where one can truly cherish his or her relationships, experiences and moments. By learning the tools necessary to face grief, you can change your life. It is never too early nor too late to learn how you can face grief with help via a support group or one-on-one.
