In the journey through grief, one thing becomes evident – the longing for healing and growth is a common theme and yet so many of us don’t seek support. It’s a desire that lives deep within us, and one that takes courage to explore in order to overcome the pain and move towards resiliency. In my own journey through grief, I’ve walked the challenging paths of losing both my husband and my son. The pain was profound, and it shook the very foundations of my world. But within that darkness, I found something remarkable—a deep and unwavering desire to heal and grow. This blog post is a heartfelt exploration of that desire and how it forms the foundation of your path from grief to resilience.
The Unwavering Desire for Change
To embark on this transformative journey, one must possess an unwavering desire for change. Grief can be all-consuming, and the first step toward healing is acknowledging the need for something different. It’s about saying, “I want to feel better. I want to find joy again.” This desire, often born from the depths of pain, becomes the driving force that propels us forward. After losing my son, I felt an almost immediate push to educate myself about what happens to our spirit once our physical body is no longer in existence and knew that I needed that in order to heal.
The Open Mind as Your Compass
In this process, keeping an open mind is like having a compass that helps you navigate the uncharted waters of grief. Grief isn’t a linear path, and healing can take unexpected turns. Embracing change, seeking new perspectives, and being open to various forms of support can be transformative. It’s about understanding that healing isn’t a one-size-fits-all process. During my own journey, I had to learn that my grief was not going to look like everyone else’s and that it was imperative that I remain open to the possibilities and learning new things.
Investing in Your Emotional Well-being
Investing in oneself is a powerful act of self-compassion. Just as we would invest in our physical health, our emotional well-being deserves the same attention. It’s a testament to your commitment to healing. After losing my son, I was drawn to supporting others who are suffering the effects of grief and loss and educating society about the importance of grief specific support.
As I share this journey with you, remember that the desire to heal and grow is not just a concept; it’s a living, breathing force that resides within all of us. It’s what has allowed me to find resilience and embark on a path to support others in their own journeys through grief. As you nurture your own desire, remember that healing isn’t about erasing grief but finding the strength to carry it with you, embracing life’s beauty alongside its challenges. This path is not always easy, but your desire to heal and grow will light the way.
