Grief is Not a Disorder

Loss comes to us in many different forms…could be the loss of a loved one, the loss of a job or simply moving from one city to another, a person can incur a sense of loss. We are given opportunities for which to mourn and to grieve, but how do you do it? Do you allow yourself the gift of grieving when you’ve encountered a loss? So many of us pick up and continue on, as if nothing happened.

When we encounter a life changing event in our life, it’s important to take heed and notice that something is changing and we need to give the time necessary to adjust to the changes in our life.  This doesn’t mean to put on the sack cloth of ashes and mope around as though you’re the only one in the world.  But it is important to allow the spirit to heal from some major change that has occurred in your life.


I turn to prayer.  When I encounter a loss or a change in my life, prayer is where I turn to first.  It may not always give me the consolation that I need, but I feel that it’s important to keep the lines of communication open with my creator and my savior.   In addition, I write.  But that’s my thing and it brings me comfort and clarity.  What brings you clarity?  What brings you comfort?  Do you go out and do for others?  Do you stay home with the covers pulled over your head?  How is it that you deal with grief and loss in your life?  I’m curious to know.

Please leave me a comment and let me get to know you a little!  Thanks for stopping in to see me!  Have a blessed day – but more importantly – be a blessing to others!
