February is the month of love. We spend a lot of time and energy showing our love to others. While this is a beautiful expression, I would like to challenge you all to love yourselves a little more.
Being kind means not judging grief, and allowing space for all emotions. Riding the waves of grief can undoubtedly be excruciating at times, but remember, just as the tide comes in and goes out, so too does the intensity of feelings.
Perhaps the kindest things you can do is acknowledge the feelings, engage in self care and not be afraid to reach out for help when we feel like the waves of grief are pulling you too far out to sea.
