30 Steps Toward Healing – Step 15: Learning

30 Steps Toward Healing - Step 15: Learning

“It’s not the wound that teaches but the healing”   Marty Rubin

We all expect to experience grief at some time in our lives. Part of grief is learning to face reality, work through the hurt, adjust and live well.

While there is no specific timeframe to getting through the grieving process, there are some lessons that grief can teach us along the way.

The most profound lessons often come from the relationships we have in our lives.  Experiencing a loss as devastating as this can often teach us about the relationships that are worth investing in as well as those that perhaps aren’t.  Many friendships can be strengthened while others sadly dissolve under the intense pressure of this kind of loss.

Some of the greatest lessons we can learn are about ourselves, we can often be stronger than we have ever imagined possible and we can also become more aware of the things we need to work on.

Action: Record in your journal insights and feelings about the person you lost and your new life. As time passes, you’ll be amazed at all that you have learned.
