Living With Loss

6 find that each time

6 find that each time they share information about the loss a layer of pain is removed. Gradually, grief relief is experienced. In his book, Living With Loss, Healing With Hope, Rabbi Earl Grollman stresses the therapeutic importance of talking about your loss. “In times of crisis, silence is not golden.” Rabbi Grollman urges grievers to talk things out with trusted friends, family, spiritual leaders, counselors. “You may need to repeat over and over all the circumstances surrounding your loss.” 9 Let Tears Flow In his book, Born For Love: Reflections on Loving, Leo Buscaglia, popular author and university professor, offers this wisdom about crying: “Tears are a form of compassionate thoughtfulness. Each time we cry, we emerge with clearer eyes, cleaner vision. Only recently has our culture eased up its unwritten taboo against men crying. Traditionally, men were expected to display granite faces to the world. A good healthy cry can be a sign of maturity. We’ve got it all wrong if we still believe that crying is a sign of weakness. Real weakness is in not allowing ourselves access to the emotions expressed through tears.”

7 10 Maintain Hope by Tapping into Your Faith Although the journey through grief is uncharted and frustrating, do all you can to keep hope alive. One effective way to keep hope alive is by tapping into your faith. Make an appointment to speak with your spiritual leader. Consider this experience of one woman whose 54-year-old husband died suddenly from a heart attack: “When Jimmy died I was devastated and angry at God for this ‘injustice’. Although I had not attended church regularly, I called the pastor. He was extremely helpful, reminding me that it was okay to be angry. He assured me that God could handle my anger. The pastor encouraged me to vent my feelings. He listened sensitively and compassionately. Gradually, my faith deepened and became a sustaining power in my life. As I became more spiritually connected, I felt my anger diminish and give way to acceptance and peace.” Each time we cry, we emerge with clearer eyes, cleaner vision
