We have forgotten it’s okay to be sad.

It's okay to be sad and grieve with Dr Aoife Earls ND in Oakville ON with winter scene and winter path

Life can really suck sometimes, and there can be long long periods where things feel very heavy. Grieving the loss of a loved one, or the loss of what you thought things would look like, or the end of a relationship is all very difficult. The last 6 months for so many people I know and work with has been very rough 💕

There is no timeline for feeling “better”. In some instances, loss isn’t something that we move on from, it’s something we learn to integrate into ourselves and go into the world with tenderness and understanding. 

If we don’t give ourselves permission to feel the heaviness, discomfort, blah, sorrow, however it manifests, then we will not be able to get to the love and understanding we desire at the other side.

The other side of deep loss and sadness isn’t the death of ourselves, it’s birth to a new more loving self that understands the complexities of life.

All of it is okay.

As we go into a holiday season that for many reminds of what isn’t there, or brings up complex feelings about self-care, loving relationships, remember that the feelings are a reminder that you are still honoring parts of yourself that are moving through big things, and the mere understanding that you can is deeply special. It is what makes us human, and the dark connects us with the joy and love. You’re not alone 💕🥰
