Last week’s blog post regarding friendship and grief certainly seems to have struck a cord with you, my readers. Hence, a Good Grief, Charlie Brown: Part Two seems in order.
It’s clear from the many emails received that a lot of you are experiencing intense challenges. As we are all too well aware, these are unprecedented times. Let me begin by saying that you may feel stuck, feel alone, feel abandoned (you pick the label), but know this: you can overcome any unwanted feelings and overcome any obstacles once you set your mind to it. It may be tough.
It may not be fun, but you can make it happen if you CHOOSE to do so. But you must choose. One of the very ironic things I have learned along the way is we are better able to CHOOSE when we show up for others. “Being there” emotionally and spiritually for someone unconditionally opens up many blessings. And those blessings are not just for the person you are helping, they bless you too!
