When we experience the loss of someone or something significant in our lives, it can leave us feeling broken. We may wonder if life will ever be the same. The hard truth is that we won’t be the same, but there is beauty that can come from your brokenness. Last night, we completed our 8-week session of Grief to Growth. We are completely amazed by the growth that took place in the lives of the participants.
Our final two sessions included each person breaking a piece of pottery. We then put the pieces back together and made a beautiful piece of artwork out of it. This exercise was symbolic of the brokenness we can feel after loss. But it also showed that as we implement the Grief to Growth Pathway, we can put the pieces back together and create something beautiful from our pain.
If you’re struggling to cope with loss, know that you’re not alone. And know that, even though you may feel broken, there is still hope for healing. If you would like to know more about Grief to Growth, visit our website at grieftogrowth.org.
