Work Through Grief Triggers During the Holidays
A year after losing her sister, it’s time to face another holiday. Here’s how one woman is dealing with the loss and finding joy again
I know this is not a typical or “pleasant” topic just before Christmas, but I think it’s necessary. Lots and lots of people are really hurting right now, their hurt is magnified during the Christmas Season and often it’s hard for them to talk about it. I think it’s so easy to be dismissive and want to just encourage people to cheer up because after all, ‘Tis the Season and all that, but it’s not so easy. No one wants to be hurting or grieving or struggling with depression or whatever else it is that’s painful for them. Sometimes life is hard, sometimes it just sucks. For those we can’t help, we can pray for. And if you’re one such person, perhaps the article linked above might offer you some suggestions for coping.
In the meantime, know that I am praying for you.
