Grievers Have Choices

February 3, 2024

Hello, everyone! Welcome to another episode of “Healing Starts with the Heart.” I’m Sharon, your host, and today we’re going to talk about something really important: the choices we have as grievers.

Often, when we’re grieving, it feels like we have no control over anything. But guess what? That’s not entirely true. Even in grief, we have choices.

You have the choice to stay where you are or to go somewhere new. It’s okay to say no to things you don’t feel ready for. And you know what? It’s perfectly fine to ask for help when you need it. Or you can choose to handle things on your own.

Some days, you might want to sleep all day, and that’s okay. If you feel like crying in public, that’s okay too. You can go to a party and have fun, even if you’re grieving.

Eat what you want, when you want. If you need companionship, reach out to someone. Or, if you prefer to be alone, that’s a valid choice as well. It’s okay to feel sad, and it’s okay to change your routine or the things you used to do.

You don’t always have to have all the answers. And most importantly, you can choose to heal, in your own time and in your own way.

Remember, grief doesn’t take away your power to make choices. Every day, you can make small decisions that are right for you. Thank you for tuning in to “Healing Starts with the Heart.” Your journey is unique, and your choices are valid. Take care of yourselves, and I’ll talk to you in the next episode.
