Grief is the hardest emotion to describe because it’s changes from day to day. This description occurred to me yesterday. You are completely robbed of moments you’ll never have. And that just sucks. Drop a ❤️ if you can relate ⬇️

You've decided to go to therapy.

Congrats on being courageous, strong and powerful.

You’re courageous for stepping into the unknown, strong for looking in the mirror and recognizing that you need new tools, and powerful for turning to face the past and deciding that the legacy of hurt stops with you.

Before you do anything else, I want you to agree with me on this important truth: You are worth being well. And part of being well is recognizing when you need the guidance of a professional - so you’re doing great.

Whether you’re dealing with grief or trauma or you’re navigating a difficult relationship, working with a good therapist can teach you how to relate to yourself and the people in your life, reconcile your past, and build a new future. I know because I’ve been there - on the receiving and giving end of therapy.

It’s a process. It will be hard. But it will also be worth it.

You have no control who lives, who dies who tells your story,
Delony

The loss of a parent is often devastating. We asked you what age you were at the time you lost your mother or father. So many of us are grieving the loss of a parent. Mother’s Day and Father’s Day can be tough if we don’t have that parent here with us to share our appreciation with.

For those who have lost a parent, what are you most grateful to them for?
