Megan Devine entitles her book: It's Okay That You're Not Okay.
It is okay that you are not okay.
Disagreements, fractures, disappointments, loss, absences and deprivations are universal experiences. And so too is love...
There are no exceptions.
Sometimes we need someone to talk with beyond the
well-meaning platitudes and pat explanations offered by family, friends and confidants. Life is ever changing.
We struggle with:
- Death - of a loved one... or not so loved one
- End of relationships, separation, divorce
- Pet companion loss
- Compromise of physical and/or
- Stress at work, career change, job loss, downsized
- Financial stressors - buying and selling
- Moving, Immigration
- Life Transitions - marriage, empty nest, retirement
- Coming out
- Emotional distancing from children as they
become independant, fail to launch, or
- Growing up, growing apart, growing old
- And many, many more changes...
