a new group for me~~
Monday, October 05, 2015
Last Wednesday I went to my 1st bereavement group.
There were 2 moderators and 10 women in varying stages of grief. One woman in grief for years and one other woman for 3 weeks and then everyone else in between. There was hurt, anger, disbelief, etc.
How sad for us and how good for us that we are all grieving and in the same boat. We can help each other by listening to and feeling each other's pain. We can get to know each other and learn about the loved ones...husbands, daughters, partners, mothers. We may become friends or just women that passed by each other on the road to healing. Time will tell.
We have "homework" to do. Questions to be answered that you really have to think about. I've done mine and I don't like what I see...guilt, mean spiritedness, anger, sadness and a whole load of emotions.
Tomorrow we attend the group for the 2nd time and I look forward to it. I may learn a lot from these ladies and maybe I will be able to help them in some small way.
