“I just can’t seem to pull it together. The smallest things trigger me and I get angry or cry. This is not who I am. I want ‘me’ back. Can you help me?”
Surviving life’s transitions, the pressures of separation, divorce, job termination, the illness or death of a loved one, can often feel like you're navigating an emotional minefield of grief and guilt, even feelings of anger, failure and shame.
After a major loss or change, many people can live their lives feeling hopeless and heartbroken, disheartened and disenchanted. Instead of moving forward with their recovery, and beyond the pain, they stagnate, endlessly reliving the negative experience, telling that same story, searching for someone or something to blame.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
