WHO AM I?
I subscribe to a daily email for grief. The web www.griefshare.com has helped me out almost as much as this one. Today's email really hit home. I've been asking myself this question for the last month.
"Who am I?" asks Heidi. "I had identified with my husband; I had become one with him. Our hopes and dreams were together. And now what, who am I?"
When you are confused and uncertain, and you don't even know who you are anymore, remember that these feelings are expected with the loss of a spouse. Spend time working through these bewildering thoughts, and don't rush this process.
Trying to skip steps on your grief journey will not aid your healing; it will only set you back. Your identity is not gone; it just needs to be REDISCOVERED.
"Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture" (Psalm 100:3).
Happy Easter ~ Happy Spring :)
