My Latest Still Standing Post: Self-Care and Significant Others
I hope you’ll read (and enjoy!) my latest article on Still Standing. After re-reading it, I wanted to make an addition to point out that being a seemingly stoic caretaker in a time of deep grieving can be grieving in and of itself. Many people heal by helping others. After all, that’s how I finally began true healing after Colin’s death. That’s how I began to find my way out of the deep, steaming well of tears and anger that I found myself flailing in. Once I reached out to others to help, I found myself buoyed back up to the mouth of that well, breathing fresh air and soaking up sunshine.
Staying strong doesn’t always mean not grieving. It just depends on who you are.
