Capture Your Grief | Day 10 | W o r d s
Words are so important, especially the ones we tell ourselves over and over again…
For those of you who know me, who might have seen ‘Grief Reflections’ I did with Carly Marie Dudley from Project Heal or for those of you who read my book, you know…
Your words create.
As simple as this may sound, it is a concept that needs a bit more explanation.
Let’s start simply with the question of what we are telling ourselves about our grief, with the myths we repeat or have been told and come to believe over time.
Statements like: ‘getting over’ – ‘moving on’ – ‘I’ve lost it’ – ‘I broke down’ – ‘I’m broken’ or, most interesting one: ‘I’m sorry I’m crying’… What are they really conveying?
