What do we do when the pain is too great?


So many are experiencing the pain of loss right now and my heart goes out to all of you.  

-The loss of a loved one

-The loss of our health and the potential for death

-The loss of a partner through ending of a relationship

-The loss of a job or career

-The loss of a home

-The loss of love

-The loss of financial investments

-The loss of courage

-The loss of hope

What do you do when you experience loss?  Write them down now.

I often want to physically get up and run away or drive away as if some how I can get away from it.  I want to cry and cry and get rid of all the painful feelings.  I want to hide and never come out.  I want to talk and share with someone I trust.

Others want to drink or yell at someone or pretend it isn’t there.  Oh…… that’s a good one, PRETEND.  Most of us are pretty good at pretending.  If I don’t think about it or talk about it then it isn’t there.  If you are experiencing any kind of pain stuffing it doesn’t make it go away.  Pretending only stuffs it deeper within you.  It gets stored within you. 

Feel the pain and let it go…..

The pain can be emotional pain, physical pain, or mental pain.  Each of us experience this pain in different ways.  When something we hold onto so dear to us is suddenly gone, we don’t know what to do.  The sadness and pain can take us over.  We scramble to live again.  We think about it, worry about it, strategize about it, try to fix it.  And most of our best intentions don’t work.  Most of our efforts we are using our mind to think it and rethink it.  Stop!

Do nothing…..think nothing……just let it be………….nothing you can do right now is going to change it……………………..relax for this moment for this day and just be.
