Grief is not a sign of weakness or a lack of faith but rather a normal reaction to loss. Grief is an emotional, spiritual and physical wound that takes time to heal. Grieving takes time because we must mourn each facet of the lost relationship that made it special.

There is no right or wrong way to grieve, nor is there a set time frame in which mourning must be completed. Grief can be resolved by dealing with feelings openly, by going through the pain and finding a new focus for life.

Grief and loss affect everyone at some point during their lives. Whether the loss of someone you care about is anticipated or completely unexpected, the feelings are profound. We want to share tools to help you through this process. We understand what you are going through.

When faced with situations where folks don't feel in control or they experience almost unbearable pain, many turn to addictive behavior to numb the pain and escape from the constant nightmare of the losses they have suffered.
