How was module 1? I hope your heart is beginning to expand and feel more open during this tender time. Welcome to module 2. This week, we are going to talk about our pet's wisdom.Our pets live in the moment and don't have an agenda of how they should be in the world when to eat, sleep, play, and love.
For some reason, society has some unrealistic expectations of how pet parents should be in their grief. "Grieve alone, you need to move forward, it was just a pet, or why not get another pet" maybe some things you've been hearing. In our loss, we might find that we have to hide who we are when we are hurting to spare others from our pain.
In module two, we will speak to myths surrounding grief and how to cope when your heart is hurting. Friends and family mean well but sometimes how support may not be what we need, so it is helpful to be able to learn to ask for help, and not to put your grief aside to make someone else feel better. We will explore ways to take care of yourself during this tender time in six self-paced lessons.
Below are some key takeaways from module two, along with a preview of intentions we will be set each day. Remember that we designed for you to take as little or as much time as you need. If it feels like it's too much, you can always come back to it at a later time when it feels right for you. Just as the love you have for your beloved animal companion is unique, so is your grief.
