We Grieve Differently

We accept without question uniqueness in the physical world ... fingerprints, snowflakes, etc.  But we often refuse that same reality in our emotional world.  This understanding is needed, espeically in the grieving process. 

No two people will ever grieve the same way, with the same intensity or for the same duration.  It is important to understand this basic truth.  Only then can we accept our own manner of grieving and be sensitive to another person's response to loss.  Only then are we able to seek out the nature of support we need for our own personalized journey back to wholeness and be able to help others on their own journey.  by Jinny Tesik, M.A.

Contact Becky Andrews, LPC, CT for information on a grief group that may meet your needs or individual companioning.  801.259.3883 or email:

Acknowledging Anxiety

The first step in reducing our anxiety is to acknowledge our anxiety.  When you hide your anxious feelings for weeks, months, years; the anxiety perpetuates.  Anxiety is not your fault.  There is nothing inherently wrong with who you are.  You are a good, valuable, uniquely special person.  You simply are experiencing anxiety.  You are not alone.  Share how you are feeling with a trustworthy friend, partner, or professional.  When you acknowledge how you feel, you taken an important step toward feeling better.  You step into the driver's seat and take the wheel away from axiety.  You open the door to learning how to feel better.

The therapists at Resilient Solutions, Inc. can help you in this journey.  Visit our website: and contact one of them directly.
