What was my way of coping with grief and loss?

It was 2011. I felt as if I had experienced a fair amount of grief and loss. I had had a hard childhood, lost my grandparents, some good friends, and many pets.

I felt as if I had dealt with it all quite effectively. My life was good, and I did not feel any heavy effects of my past grief. It was then that I experienced the worst grief of my life!

My son was diagnosed with an inoperable malignant brain tumor in December of 2011 and would die a short nine months later. The grief was intense, and I was unsure in what way I would be coping with my grief.

I talked with many counselors and social workers after his death. It was helpful but I could not find an individual who had been through what I had that I could relate to. That is truly what I wanted.

Many years went by and I was able to help other people that had a similar experience to me. I still grieved myself at times and wanted to continue to find someone like me that had ways of coping with grief and loss.

I still could not find that person, so I decided to get the training I needed to accentuate my positives and become the person I was looking for.

This was my way of coping with grief and loss. I decided to be the person I was seeking so that when another person was searching for help, I would be there to serve them.

It has changed my life and could certainly change yours as well. Click here to find out more about you can find your way to coping with grief and loss.
