We have all suffered loss. We know the feeling of being heartbroken.
Someone or something very close to us was taken away and we are left hurt, alone and full of feelings we don’t know what to do with.
Grief is not only for those who mourn the loss of a dear one’s life. Grief belongs to all of us.
Every time there is loss, there must be grief in order for those who hurt to heal and recover.
Help Me I Hurt, looks at places where we have suffered loss, explains what’s happing to us when we are grieving and offers ways to deal with the pain and confusion.
Many of life’s losses never get addressed and cause problems in our daily lives.
Help Me I Hurt will help you identify losses that have caused you hurt and it will help you process feelings you may have never dealt with.
See if even now, maybe years after you pushed it away, there isn’t some chance to uncover the wound and finally begin to feel better.
