First let me start by saying to those who have lost a loved one this past year, that my prayers for strength and healing are sent your way. My hope is that each of you are continuing to take care of yourselves, and find peace.
I have not experienced the pain of losing a parent(s), child, or a spouse, yet, but I am hoping that those who have, will continue to share how they are dealing with letting go of the baggage of guilt and anger. How are you moving past your caregiving roles into a role of caring for yourselves now? Or are you? It seems that many become crippled by their losses. Old hurts, what ifs, just keep coming in waves.
While we all know that grief has so many stages, and each person handles grief differently, maybe sharing some of the ways you all are coping and dealing with your losses will help others.
