Maat E's Mental Health Message:
Make losses life lessons!
When we lose loved ones (and possessions) it can be excruciatingly painful. We go through the usual stages of denial/shock, anger, depression and eventually we accept and heal. It can be helpful to allow ourselves to experience the full range of emotions. They will not last forever and the crying will stop. Until then, we can only be where we emotionally are. If the question of "Why?" comes up shift to asking "What?"...What is the life lesson, the blessing that this event can bring. Ask "How?"...How can I get though this? There is a divine growth lesson in all of life's experiences, especially ones that bring us grief. Healing can be found in the lesson of the loss. When we are ready for it, the lesson will appear.
Have a blessed day full of life, health and vitality.
Peace Maat E.
