The grief process is disorienting, non linear and, often, lonely. But it's also profoundly natural. The work of grief is holding space for all the emotions and memories to show up as they need to, and to do so with enough internal safety to not become lost. Grief is exhausting and profoundly meaningful work.
How we attach to others has to do with who we are attaching to, how we see ourselves and what connection has looked like in the past. We often what to ascribe responsibility to someone for the level of discomfort and hurt that comes as a result of attachment challenges but the work of therapy is to shift from blaming or shaming to a place of care, curiosity and emotional security. Regardless of what causes the attachment wound, each situation is an opportunity for a correct experience.
