Starting Over After a Catastrophic Loss
Recovering your life
Truth 5: You must get real with yourself. You need to get real about what your daily life is like right now, to take stock of your reality. Even if the reality is sad or ugly, it is the truth. You may be spending five hours a day crying. Your cupboards and your refrigerator may be empty because you haven’t gone grocery shopping for a month. You may be refusing to pick up the phone and isolating yourself from your friends and family. Whatever the truth is, you can work with it.
