It Takes Courage to Tell Our Stories

Share this post:

It is sounds so easy.

When we suffer loss, if we'll talk of our loss with others, we'll more quickly work through, and learn lessons, from the loss.

That's what psychologists who study trauma say.

A different set of psychologists — those who study women in our society — say that talking of our sadness, mourning out loud, if you will, requires us to appear vulnerable, needy even.

Which we are loathe to do.

So, we need to talk, but we don't.

Which is why a blog I read this week was so moving.

What story of loss have you yet to articulate, to make meaning of?
