Loss and inner growth action steps:
- In-depth self-exploration questions: How do I feel about loss? What have I done in situations of loss? How has loss affected my life? Have I affected how I react to loss? Am I creating any feelings of loss? How do my emotions affect loss and vice versa?
- List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with loss at the center and then list or put around it all the words that come to mind associated with it. Next make a list of words of the feelings that you associate to loss. Now identify what words between the two lists seem to go together.
- Bring your awareness to your feelings about loss and allow them to flow. As this is going on, make note of things that stand out for you as you are allowing the feeling to express itself. If you notice a pattern, what is it and what does it say about you to you?
