EXPERIENCE has taught us that sadness is healthy. Sadness enables us to do our grieving, to move through our losses. As children, how many of us, when we were hurt or betrayed and left sobbing, got what we needed?
I didn’t. Most didn’t.
It was as simple then as it is now. What we needed to hear was someone who we trusted say that our sobbing, our crying was okay. We only needed that someone close to us to label and affirm our feelings initially, so we could learn to do that for ourselves, and then, with some practice, eventually do the same for others.
