Grief is a process. It takes some time to move through the steps and on to our healing journey.
I am so excited to be here with you today. And today I’m going to be sharing with you 5 subtle signs that you need grief coaching.
#1 Signs You Need Grief Coaching
You feel lost. You might not know who you are anymore. Not only did you lose your loved one, but you lost a piece of yourself, and there could be this big hole in your heart, and you’re really not sure where to go, what to do, or who you even are anymore. You will never be that same person that you were when your loved one was alive. You are now a completely different person, so who are you? Are you asking yourself that?
#2 Signs You Need Grief Coaching
You’re suppressing your emotions. Do you find yourself holding your tears back, not wanting to move through the feelings you’re feeling? Do you bottle everything up and put on the “I’m fine” face on for everybody else? Do you feel that tension in your core and you don’t want to release those feelings because you’re not sure how you’re going to be able to handle it? Do you suppress your emotions by drinking alcohol, taking prescription medication to numb the pain, or even taking drugs? This is common for most of us that go through the grieving process we try to numb out and not feel all the feelings. But it is crucial that we feel all of those feelings. If we do not feel our emotions, we will never heal. So be aware of that, are you suppressing all of your emotions.
#3 Signs You Need Grief Coaching
You’re separating yourself from others. Do you find yourself wanting to stay at home, be by yourself, not wanting to go to those social gatherings or going out for that cup of coffee with a friend, that you do not want to socialize at all or feel a connection with others? You want to be by yourself. This is common, so don’t worry. But it’s important that we break through this because connection is everything in life. So if you find yourself separating yourself from others, be aware of that.
#4 Signs You Need Grief Coaching
Your health is in jeopardy. When we are grieving, our immune system is already low. We are trying to survive, and you know sometimes we’re either not eating, or we’re eating too much. And a lot of the time we tend not to eat the right foods when we’re grieving. It’s really important that we’re fuelling our bodies with the nutrients that it needs to go through our healing process. If you are not eating the right foods and you’re not doing physical activity that’s something to be aware of. If we don’t have our health in life, we have nothing, okay. And you are important. This vessel is holding your spirit, so be aware of that.
#5 Signs You Need Grief Coaching
Your relationships are suffering and I see this all the time. Marriages break, families fall apart, friendships are lost. If your relationships are suffering, please be aware of this, this is not healthy. Grief affects our entire life. It affects our job, and it affects our spirituality, it affects our relationships, our health.
Just know that if you’re experiencing these five signs, this might be something for you to think about. You are not alone in this, and you don’t have to be. So if you have any questions at all I would love to hear from you.
