The Courage to Mourn
Human beings are inherently relational creatures. Among other things, we attach to people, things, ideas, titles, money and dreams. Hence, we are consequently at risk of experiencing loss and grief as attachments change or end. Mourning our losses requires courage - courage to feel the pain, courage to address the void, courage to integrate the loss and courage to re-engage with life. Far too often in our society, the time needed to mourn is not recognized or honored as we rush to return to work and get "back to normal". We instead, need to recognize the need to mourn our losses if we are to move through and beyond our grief.
