“Faith in times of loss is like Wi-Fi, it’s invisible but it has the power to connect you to what you need” -Unknown There can be so much pressure to showcase a perfect image, all the time. Instagram is the one place you will definitely find perfection. From filters to the many editing software, we can create the perfection that everyone is longing to see.
Different Ways Of Faith In Times Of Loss
It comes in different ways. We lose jobs, homes, money, relationships and loved-one. I believe the pain and sometimes guilt that comes with these losses are all the same. There is no greater loss than others. It all comes down to how you face the loss and the amount of support you receive during these times.
I recall standing in the bathroom and became so covered with grief and suddenly began cutting my hair off. It was at that very moment, I got a glimpse of what it is to lose sight of faith. I began to cry, looked at the scissors and mirror and saw an image that I was not happy with. I saw a broken little girl who just lost her dad and needed a very tight hug.
I began to cry even harder. In the midst of my sorrow, my son came knocking on the bathroom door, wanting to use the bathroom. He never said a word to me but I am pretty sure he heard me crying in there. Since then, we have had conversations about loss and have spoken to a professional regarding the matter. Thankfully, we both are in a much better place and are embracing the fond memories of my father. Now I am stuck with an uneven, unplanned haircut LOL
All hope is not lost, even if it may seem that way.
