In a previous post, we talked about How to Put the Punctuation Point on 2020. I shared some ways you can finish the year with intention, and focus on where you’d like to be next year. Now, we’ll look at the other side of the coin…How to Survive Grief and Loss as we close out 2020.
Grief is tricky
Let’s face it…there’s been so much loss this year. We are grieving everything from loss of freedom to loss of life. There is no “rule” or “right” way to process grief. Each person must walk through it at their own pace, in their own way. As we enter the final days of December, so many may feel the weight of 2020 losses, culminating in one big heap.
As Christ-followers, we have hope in Jesus, who promises that we are never alone in our suffering. And thankfully, we have professionals who can light the way and help us strategize facing all the “firsts” of family traditions and celebrations. Maybe you haven’t personally experienced loss of a loved one this year. Sometimes, it’s hard to know what to say or how to help. We’ll talk about how to support others who are hurting, too.
We are so blessed to have Psychologist, Dr. Michele Novotni, as our guest on the Sacred Grounds Podcast to talk about how to strategize grief and self-care this holiday season. We know it’s coming…so many “firsts.” Dr. Novotni walks us through six practical steps to navigate grief and self-care this holiday season.
