What do you do when you are overcome with pain, when sadness absorbs you? What do you do when you can’t find words to express your sadness and anger?
I once wrote the following: “Feeling the pain is . . . . important for helping the body release the toxins created by suffering. The bone and sinew in the body are scarred by emotional trauma and hold the hurt well beyond the heart’s ache.Tears can provide a healing release for the whole system when they are allowed to flow.” (Lose, Love Live, The Spiritual Gifts of Loss and Change, p.43)
And I would add, Find someone and hold their hand. It helps to know you are not alone.
