My Personal Struggle with Grief

I wanted to share with you my personal story with grief.  I lost my wife after a long battle with cancer, and know how challenging and difficult the grieving process can be.  Grieving tears your heart out and turns your life upside down.   It is life altering, acutely painful and difficult to make sense of.

Whether expected or unexpected, we are thrust into the reality of having to live the rest of our life without our loved ones.  Reeling with shock and depression, you feel like a ping pong ball ― bouncing back and forth between yearning and hopelessness.   At the end of the day, holding on to our grief to the exclusion of all else can become chronic, addictive and crippling.

Everyone’s experience is unique.  The combination of circumstances related to their passing and the experiences of your life together makes a difference.  But you don’t have to do it alone.  I will help you navigate through the grieving process and move on with your life.

I used to struggle as well.  In fact, my wife died a week before our 15th wedding anniversary.  So instead of planning a joyous celebration, I was planning a funeral.  Shock and numbness helped me get through her funeral.

 But in the months following her death and for two long years afterwards, I too often experienced waves of crippling emotions that would occur at unexpected times.  It made me feel out of control and powerless.  My friends offered support and advice, but I finally came to understand that they were not the ones experiencing this tremendous loss.  It was mine and I was in charge of reassembling my life piece by piece.

Time to Heal

After a time, because the memories and sadness were too much to deal with on a daily basis, I chose to move out of our house and moved in with a friend. Slowly, I started healing. By opening up to the secrets of grieving and using daily tools, I was able to reconstruct my life while still cherishing fond memories of my late wife. Needless to say, this process turned my life around.

I can help you move on with your life. This process can help you keep positive memories of your loved one and reduce or eliminate the overwhelming sadness and emotions you are experiencing. The good news is that, with my help and guidance, it will not be so hard.

❝ Stop being a critic and be a light; don't be a judge, be a model.  I think we are far too critical.  I think the best way to correct behavior is to accentuate and affirm positive behavior and to ignore negative behavior.

Generally speaking, there is a time to correct, of course.

But my biggest advice would be, 'Affirm your child.' ❞
