In my post yesterday, I listed the 10 Excuses—Why People Avoid Grief Recovery. By far the most common excuse is “It is way to expensive,” or “ I simply can’t afford it.” I usually interpret this to mean, I’m not sure I’m worth the price it will cost me.
I wasn’t there when this woman the woman I mentioned in yesterday's post was being mugged. I don’t know if she made a decision to fight her attacker, but if so, that decision came with an enormous price tag. I’m guessing that after a lengthy hospital stay, untold days of rehabilitation, and a mountains of medical bills, she may have wished she could turn back the clock and make different choice.
Money can often point us in the wrong direction, prompting us to a wrong decision. In both cases of robbery, it came down to just a few dollars. When it comes down to recovery of a loss you’ve encountered and your pursuit of restored hope, why would you make a decision not to invest in a healthy, happy future?
Too many people wait until they reach the bottom before they are willing to invest in themselves to overcome life’s hardships. While the choice is completely yours, I encourage you to consider the cost of not spending the dollars on your own mental and emotional health. I spent the money to learn how to recover from the hurts that have hounded my life. It has helped me to climb out of the bottom of the pit I was stranded in and get to the top with an improved life.
You know what? I prefer the view from the top. I have counted the cost and decided—NO MORE EXCUSES. I am worth the investment—and so are you.Call the Grief and Wellness Group today and take your first steps toward healing your broken heart.
