We Were Born Knowing How to Grieve

Day 85: We were Born Knowing How to Grieve

I would say that 75% of my work is being with people as they unlearn the gamut of perceptions or beliefs they once learned to hold about grief. As I watch people shed some of these, I notice how they 1) gain access to a fuller range of emotions and 2) begin to have a higher tolerance for distress.

Many of my clients learn that grief in and of itself is not the enemy—it is the not having it or dismissing it or judging it or listening to the various ways one is “supposed to act” that causes suffering.

Grief is the path forward.

Welcome to my 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.
