Letting Go

May 23, 2024

Dear Reader,

As we navigate the turbulent waters of grief, there inevitably comes a time when we must confront the difficult task of letting go. It's not an easy journey, but it's an essential one if we are to find peace amidst the pain.

I wanted to share with you a powerful exercise that has been instrumental in my own grief journey: letting go. It's a process of releasing the thoughts, guilt, plans, memories, words, and opportunities that weigh heavily on our hearts, preventing us from fully mourning our loss.

So, let's complete the exercise together:

Grab your journal, favorite pen and a comforting beverage and work through the following... 

  • In order to fully mourn my loss, I let go of these thoughts:
    For example: I can’t manage without him/her.
  • In order to fully mourn my loss, I let go of this guilt:
  • In order to fully mourn my loss, I let go of these plans for the future:
  • In order to fully mourn my loss, I let go of these painful memories:
  • In order to fully mourn my loss, I let go of these unspoken words:
  • In order to fully mourn my loss, I let go of these lost opportunities:

Take your time with each new prompt, and don't feel bad if you get stuck. 

Simply, allow yourself to sit with the emotions that arise, and know that it's okay to feel whatever you're feeling.

Remember my friend, in letting go, we are creating space for healing and growth.

With warmth and understanding,

Nicole
