Since I have been having such a tough time with the death of my mom I have decided to join a bereavement group. We meet on Tuesday nights and it goes for 2 hours. Last night was my second class and I find it very helpful to be able to talk about mom and get what I need by having people listen and validate my feelings.
I can cry if needed, and it doesn't feel dumb, or like I'm being foolish.
I can't talk about who is in the group but it is a nice small group of just the 4 of us. I can tell you I am not the oldest which really surprised me!
The room is cozy with comfy chairs and nice smells from oils they have going in an infuser. There are 2 instructors, I guess that's what they are called, they help keep the flow going so there is always something to discuss. I wouldn't think I was the kind of person that would get something out of the group but I am and I'm glad I signed up for it . I am already looking forward to my next session.
