When some people hear that I’m a certified creative grief coach, they ask, “Why would I want to talk about my grief?” They think that talking about it will cause them to relive the grief and get stuck there. However, the opposite usually happens and people emerge from grief coaching sessions with the ability to live their lives more fully. If you’re looking for a reason to talk about your grief, here are the top five:
- Holding in your grief is bad for your health. At a minimum, it decreases your immunity and interrupts your sleep patterns.
- Grief keeps us from living wholeheartedly.
- Remembering your loss honors your past, present, and future.
- Talking about grief helps you to process the myriad emotions that you hold.
- You’ll feel better!
