Griever--a definition

Day 14: Griever—a definition

Grief is not one thing. Grievers are not having the exact same experiences. And yes, grief looks and feels and shows up in different ways for each of us.

And yet there are some similarities that are worth naming. The awareness and understanding of life’s fragility as a griever is one of them.

This instant awareness can show up in so many ways—as increased anxiety, as the feeling of “when is the next shoe going to drop,” or “who is going to die next,” or “anything could happen at any moment.”

Living in this space is exhausting. So go slow. And 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.
