Ask the Clinical Hypnosis Expert – Peggy Davis
Christmas, more than any other time of the year, amplifies a person’s feelings of loss. Memories of someone who was there in Christmases past who is no longer, such as through death or divorce, can be unbearable. Very often, a person who is grieving becomes uncharacteristically unpleasant (moody, withdrawn, argumentative, bitter) because they have lost their self-esteem. It might seem easier to leave them alone, but my message to you is this: Caring is expressed in many different ways. Please reach out and do something, because to hear no one at the door or no phone call is to feel invisible and alone. Quiet concern is sometimes all a hurting person needs. Listen empathetically. Bring a gift of food or go for coffee. Make yourself available, helping the person to maintain and expand social ties, and diminishing a sense of loneliness. Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference.
