Grief is a Learning Process

Day 38: Grief is a Learning Process

Learning can be brutally hard. Think of how difficult it can be to learn a new language, a new sport, a new job—all things that some of us make choices towards.

And then, think about learning something you don’t want to learn—how much harder that is.

And then, think about learning something that is your nightmare, and then having to re-encounter that every day. This type of learning involves re-working a new world while simultaneously carving out space for yourself within it.

That is what is happening when we grieve a significant loss. We have to re-work everything.

Grief might be the most exhausting learning process that we ever encounter.

So go slow. Give yourself grace.

Welcome to my second, 100-day project. I hope to provide a daily offering on something grief-related. I am a grief therapist and educator working with people in Oregon, Washington, DC, Maryland, and Maine. This feed is in honor of each person who has trusted me with their stories and wisdom during their grief journey. I hope that others may benefit from simple and straightforward talk about a topic that can be difficult.
