We have experienced a fair amount of both death and divorce in our lives. "The Death of Marriage" (this week's podcast) can be every bit as painful and devastating as losing a loved one to death. Yet divorces don't have funerals. Why is that? Such rituals can be very helpful to those mourning a deep loss. If we could somehow develop a social habit, like a funeral, to support those experiencing the loss of a marital dream that is no longer possible with that person they planned to be with forever, we would all be better for it. We think that divorces should have funerals too.
"Restoring Hope During Hard Times" (this week's video) is a great compliment to our podcast "The Death of a Marriage." Hard times can require a great deal of personal grief processing, whether we are grieving the loss of a loved one through death or through divorce. Such rituals can include journaling, writing & burning, daily exercise, self care and other stress relieving practices. A good counselor or coach can also be an invaluable resource as we recover from loss and rebuild our lives. Please don't hesitate to contact us to inquire about private or group coaching if you'd like some personal support from us. Our short for this week is "Blessings That Follow Loss."
