Focus On Loss

Hello again, and thank you for looking in on my blog. This month, I am reflecting on all the

conversations I have had with family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances. Listening to

how they are feeling, some in depth and some in passing. There is a common theme. Loss.

Yes, we can acknowledge the sad loss of any loved one, and victims of the Covid pandemic

are most certainly included. What other loss could there be, do you ever wonder?


FREEDOM;

RELATIONSHIPS;

COMPANIONSHIP;

EDUCATION;

OPPORTUNITIES;

SELF ESTEEM;

DIRECTION;

MOMENTUM;

FITNESS;

SELF-CARE;

INCOME;

JOB;

HEALTH and access to routine HEALTHCARE;

SPONTANEITY;

FRIENDS….


The list goes on and on.


Have you suffered any of these losses since that first lockdown in March 2020, as so many

others have but can barely recognise their own sense of loss?


Whenever we, as humans, suffer a loss, there is a natural grieving process to take place. We

understand and empathise with the death of a loved one. What of these other losses?

Grief has no cure, but we can learn to manage it and live with it. This usually becomes less

challenging as time passes and everyone is different. Grief is not a problem to solve, rather

an emotional response to dissolve within your being, so that it remains part of your make

up.




I am reminded of that scene in the film Shirley Valentine, when Tom Conti’s character fawns

over Shirley’s stretch marks. It shows you have lived, he enthuses. Grief and loss create

stretch marks in our minds and, yes, they too show that you have lived.

esteem, establish better habits and kickstart your momentum again. Life is short – what are
