Difficult Emotions

When we discover a loved one has been hurt, it can cause an emotional reaction in us including shock, feelings of grief, guilt, despair, fear, anger, and loss

"Things falling apart is a kind of healing. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy."
