Journaling through grief

Journaling is a common activity therapists, doctors, family and friends suggest when going through loss or grief, not because it makes the pain go away, but because it releases the pressure that builds beneath the surface.

The words you write won’t take away the pain, but they will offer you acknowledgement in a time when anything else is inadequate.

The words won’t be perfect. They may even be ugly and a bit scary, but they hold the power to comfort in a time where nothing can make it right.

Your words are your story, and they deserve to be heard, even if only by you.

I wrote all about each of these steps in this post.
