Dating someone who is grieving
Working with Jasmin has made a huge difference in my life.Starting therapy with Jasmin has been one of the greatest things I've ever done for myself.So it’s really a matter of finding that balance between being a friend and being supportive, but also being clear of what it is that you want and need, and if this person who’s going through their grieving process isn’t capable of giving those things to you, not because they don’t care about you, not because they don’t love you, but simply because they’re really in it, and still suffering on some level.
I've been in and out of "therapy" for over 30 years.She is a very talented therapist who spends a lot of time and energy really getting to know her clients. After a session with her, I feel empowered and capable to handle any situation.I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a therapist.But grieving, particularly something of this magnitude, you’re really probably not getting someone at their full self and, not to say that you shouldn’t be with them, but the primary focus should really be friendship.
And whether or not this is someone you’re dating, just making sure that your focus is being a friend, ’cause that’s really what they’re gonna need most right now.
I started seeing Jasmin during a particularly challenging period in my life.
