Building Resilience After Grieving the Loss of Your Relationship
PODCAST: Building Resilience After Grieving the Loss of Your Relationship
Nesreed Ahmed is founder and CEO of Harbor Life Coaching, and is an ICF credentialed Professional Certified Life and Grief Coach. She is passionate about helping people find their North Star and transforming their grief into superpower. She joins Stacy Francis to discuss her role as a grief coach, and how listeners can convert their grief into resilience.
- Many people do not handle grief very well. Grief coaching helps you deal with all the emotions and upset that you are feeling in practical ways, which is more proactive and focused than counseling or therapy.
- We grieve in several different ways, and each experience that causes grief is going to be different. We must understand that grief is something that happens to us, as we cannot just choose when we’re going to fall apart, so we must allow ourselves to ride the wave.
- Part of the problem with divorces lies in self-flagellation. We doubt ourselves, asking questions like ‘How did I allow this to happen with this person? How did I not see it with this person?’
- A survey of 150 divorced women revealed that the majority of them felt like they didn’t have enough support during their divorce, and only a minority worked with a coach or therapist to help them through the process.
