|As shown in the previous posts on grief and loss this month, the emotional toll a loss can have on an individual can be heavy and impact on other areas of a persons well-being, relationships or life in general. Thankfully, humans are quite resilient in that we have an innate ability to move through the steps of grief in order to continue living and, eventually, thriving, even after a devastating loss.
|Thanks for stopping by the blog - this month I'm writing about a pretty difficult topic but one that everyone experiences to varying degrees at some point in their lives - the topic of grief and loss. This third post of the month will cover the possible impacts a person may experience after enduring a loss or bereavement which includes a segment on complicated grief. In case you missed the first couple of posts, here they are for you to bookmark and check out later:
|The theme on the blog this month has focused on the topic of loss and grief (as chosen by a poll I conducted on Twitter - thank you to those who participated!). Understandably, loss and grief can be a difficult topic to read about and so, while I highly appreciate your time, if you have experienced a loss recently, or are experiencing a tough time, please be mindful of your own emotions and well-being as some of the information in the post (and series) may be tough to read while in the midst of grief.
|Welcome to the Bloggers Corner which is a focus for all of the incredibly talented online bloggers I have had the pleasure of meeting along my own blogging journey so far. As a therapist, I am always curious to hear about the experiences and journey that has led a person to become who they are today, and so far I have found that each blogger has a unique story to tell of their own. Today I am excited to introduce Connie from EssentiallyBroken.com who writes about her own experiences of grief and loss and her journey of helping others focusing on suicide prevention. Let's hear more about Connie and her inspirational work.
