Grief and Loss

It’s Complicated

Grieving a loss is never easy, but sometimes, it’s just…complicated. It might be complicated because your relationship to the person who died was complicated – maybe you have fond memories from your childhood but more recent painful memories both of which are now swimming around in your head.  Maybe there were things unsaid between you, or things you wish could be unsaid.  Maybe the loss itself was particularly traumatic, sudden, or, well, complicated.  Maybe this loss is just one in a string of tragedies threatening to overwhelm you.  There are a million reasons why this could be a complicated experience for you, and none of them mean there’s anything wrong with you.  But now, more than ever, might be a good time to call a chaplain.  When life gets complicated, you deserve to have a team of folks around you, helping you navigate it all.
