Have you reached a point in your life where you are uncertain which direction to take? In today's society, it is crucial to seek assistance, as struggling alone can be detrimental to one's well-being. Although in the past, seeking support was viewed as a sign of weakness, it is now understood that continuing to feel stuck and not progressing is not a healthy approach. Life is a precious gift, and bottling up emotions can be harmful. Finding the right person to confide in can make a significant difference.
Recently, I encountered a woman while at a lock (I reside on a boat), and we engaged in conversation. I am still unsure how the discussion shifted to her loss of her son, who was 39 years old. She shared her experience with me, and I reciprocated by revealing that I had lost a daughter. We conversed, and she inquired about how long it took for me to feel liberated. I responded, stating that it took approximately four to five years. She expressed that she sought out someone who had also lost a child to talk to, as she believed that only someone who had experienced a similar loss could understand the pain. I concurred, emphasising the importance of finding the right person to confide in. When searching for support, it is essential to request a free consultation, inquire about their ability to relate to your situation and ensure that you have a connection.
It is crucial to understand that seeking support is not a sign of weakness; in fact, it is one of the most vital things one can do. Life is a precious gift, and seeking assistance can help you live the life you deserve with the support you require.
