Myths about Grief:
Time heals all wounds Replace the loss • Grieve alone • Gotta be strong for others Bury your feelings Keep busy Move or Change Location Suck it up buttercup Move On
Your feelings are normal and natural. The problem is that we have been socialized to believe that these feelings are abnormal and unnatural.
Whatever your LOSS is from:
- Death Divorce or End of a Relationship Loss of a Career
- of Trust of Faith of Safety
- Loss of Health of A Pet ....or more than 40 other Losses
People say you have to let go and move on in your life, but they don’t tell you what you need to do to accomplish that. The Grief Recovery Method® Outreach Program not only makes that possible, but provides partnerships and guidance to ensure that it happens.
Current West Nipissing Group of 10 Persons Concludes March 13,2018
