Grief and loss are inevitable parts of the human experience, and while we all encounter them at some point in our lives, our individual journeys through grief can each look different. However, one common aspect of grief is its stickiness. One instance of grief often brings front and center other unresolved emotions and past losses to the surface.
“When our hearts are breaking and breaking open, the metaphysical world, our team, swoops in to make sure we know we are not alone.” -Patty Lennon
