It’s Valentine’s Day but not everyone has a happy heart.
The human body experiences a powerful gravitational pull in the direction of hope. – Norman Cousins
Realization – I HAVE A NEW TEACHER & HER NAME IS JOY
Grieving. Grieving loss, a change, or the lack thereof? We all know about the five stages of grief. That fear driven quad of denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and then the welcome relief of acceptance. This is all very tricky business because there are days when you may feel you have this all down to a sweet science. You feel healed. Then out of the blue you are smacked upside the heart and there you are in emotional quicksand once more.
Sometimes our reaction to grief is counter-intuitive. We have this compelling need to escape. Escape everyone and everything including ourselves. We manage to isolate and there the real trouble begins. Left alone with only our sorrow for company we may feel the urge to merge with a satisfier. We merge and now the satisfier is the center of our attention. The satisfier may come in the form of drink, food, spending sprees, drama, a sticky alliance with an “exotic and inappropriate person.” Any and all will take us even farther away from ourselves and true healing. A week, a month, a year goes by and there we are. Grieving still. Only now we seem to have lost the keys to the car on top of it.
What can we do?
Well, we can step back. Take inventory. What do we have now? What have we lost? Have we sold off an essential part of ourselves for next to nothing? Was anything stolen? OK? Accept the loss. All of it.
Accept it and get back to the best part of who you were before the fall and let go of the rest. We only become “more” by letting go of what “little” we are holding onto. Now…embrace the brave butterfly you have become. The new you born from the gift of loss. Here, because of the uncertainty of change. Alive, in spite of lack, despair, and inelegant choices of the past. Get in the car and drive…you are free.
