As a coach, I help people in grief, or in recovery, feel comfortable expressing [loss] to people. Explaining our past experiences do not have to turn into a pity party. Wanting people to understand where we are coming from is good. And the more we tell our experiences the easier it is to stay resilient.
Acknowledgment is the best action during these times. Acknowledging that we are sad, that we loved, and that we are still in “Recovery”. Compassion for yourself is necessary to be able to get out of bed and start your day if you can.
