From the beginning of our life we are going through periods of beginning, blossoming and then ending. With every new triumph we have to let go the previously known ease of being. This becomes most obvious in our transition from childhood to becoming an adult. The teenage years are a challenge to all young people – and you might have some equivocal memories of your own as well.
Marriage, your own children – who finally leave home, your professional life begins, changes, maybe ends all together. Your husband or wife leaves you for somebody else. Painful experiences, but yet, life goes on and we have a right to live it fully and not get stuck by what has happened by the actions of other people, not even if they are as close as the own family.
Then your parents die, friends, your spouse or even your child – and now?
Or you have to face your own death, your own transition into another state of being….
What will you do, when these challenges arrive? – And they WILL arrive for everyone, for sure. How to deal with these existential challenges? Mourning, grief and sadness are normal and necessary responses to loss, and we get great benefit in allowing ourselves to go through this process fully – until we arrive on the other side, where we can see again the sunlight and the beauty of life.
In previous times people could find support for their grief process by the church, by their religious beliefs. This doesn’t work any more for many of us. So where to get the necessary support?
Psychotherapists offer their help, this is fine. But for psychologically healthy people there is no real need for such a high end professional. They need a heartfelt support of a person who has profound experience with what is happening to you and can offer a proven guideline to follow and a hand to hold you up when the pain is about to squeeze you.
And that’s exactly what our special guest for today is offering to you: Support in the challenges of the transitions in your life, when you find it hard to let go the previous period of your life and open up to a new chapter.
