Christmas Loss

How do we deal with the loss of a loved one at Christmas time?

2021 has been a year of loss for so many. All of us have faced daily updates of lives lost to Covid – so whether your loved one died this year or thirty years ago – does the pain ever go? No, it doesn’t.

Christmas is a time, it can be said, that there is a huge pressure to be happy – which can be extremely hard if someone you love is not here…

So this Christmas, how will you cope with the pain of loss?

Any way you can. We are all different, our love is unique to us and whether family, friends or pets are missing, loss is personal.

To some degree, we all cope with loss alone – and yet, in our community, the acknowledging of pain, the courage to say “love hurts sometimes” and the value of someone listening – is what helps all of us to keep going. It helps us deal with those moments of loneliness.

So in my personal pain of loss for loved ones, I send you a virtual hug – and no matter how deep my pain feels, I do know that together, we can benefit from mutual support.

So my way to deal with my loss?

It is to be grateful for the many people in my life that share their kindness – for like the stars in the sky, their light helps heal my heart.

All the Best,

Resonate Together
