16.0 Does Feeling Like a Burden Keep You from Getting Help with Grief?


Why is it that we don’t reach out for help when we clearly need it?

In previous episodes, we talked about where you can get help and support as you walk through the difficult journey of grief.  But, knowing what to do is far different than doing what you know. The power of change occurs in the action not the intention.

What can happen if you are feeling stuck or hopeless and don’t reach out for help, your journey will harder and slower and the possibility of staying stuck and hopeless is very real.  Severe isolation can lead to depression, anxiety and social anxiety – where it becomes harder and harder to get out and be around others.

Don’t stay stuck because you don’t want to ‘bother’ your family or friends.  The greater disservice to those who care about you, is NOT sharing with them.

Verse –  Our Verse for the week is:  Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.  Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me or seen in me – put it into practice.  And the God of peace will be with you.  Philippians 4:6-9
