Reconciling Your Grief and Healing Through Writing

Reconciling Your Grief and Healing Through Writing

Giving Grief a Voice...Working with widows and widowers through their grief - finding their "new normal".


Writing holds a powerful ingredient for gaining relief from grief.

Writing has the power to allow those who grieve to creatively let go of their thoughts and feelings, gain new thoughts, increase awareness of their feelings and to reflect upon the events which brought them to their grief. The creativeness of the writing process allows the spouse who was left behind to move forward and heal.

Writing aids in reflection, exploration and discovery of who they are and who they strive to become – because, as we already know, when one experiences the death of a spouse, they change inside. Writing becomes a tool for expressing not only their thoughts and feelings, but their fears and challenges; allowing them to find their “new normal”. Along with a grief mentor, writing WILL bring peace to your heart.

There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love. Washington Irving
