New Journal Prompt: Empathy after loss

This month’s journal prompt will be about empathy after loss. What do you notice about the experience of deep grief and your ability to notice other’s pain?

Understanding grief triggers journal prompt

I started writing and sharing my story and found it so healing. Journaling can be therapeutic, bring comfort and help us in the grieving process.

This year I will be sending 12 journal prompts to my email subscribers, one each month. I will be sharing my answers, and if you’re comfortable, I would love to read and share yours! Everything will be kept anonymous. This month we will be exploring our feelings of how our empathy after loss has changed. Often times once we have experienced loss, our empathy skills increase.

I am so excited for this project. I know as we journal together, we will find community, acceptance, and support. I want you to know your responses are, for lack of better word, sacred to me. Thank you sharing your story. We can do this, this big impossible thing, of healing. Life is a trip, join my caravan as we journal and heal together!

As we dive into this journal prompt, I hope we can find healing together as we explore life after loss. Sometimes we need to address the painful things in order to heal, and I want to remind you to get help with a professional grief therapist or confide in a friend as you go about this. You are not alone!

April Journal Prompt: Empathy After Loss

What do you notice about the experience of deep grief and your ability to notice other’s pain?

My Answer: How my empathy after loss has increased

Experiencing deep grief has profoundly changed my perspective, allowing me to see the world through a lens of empathy and understanding.

For me, empathy after loss has increased. In the depths of my own sorrow, I have learned to recognize the silent struggles of others, the hidden pain that often goes unnoticed. This newfound sensitivity has opened my heart to the suffering of those around me, enabling me to offer compassion and support where it is needed most.

Each tear shed in my own sorrow has become a prism through which I can now see and feel the anguish of others, forging a bond of shared humanity in our collective journey through grief and healing. Through my own pain, I have discovered the transformative power of empathy, and I am grateful for the opportunity to be a source of solace and understanding for those who walk a similar path of sorrow. I view it as a superpower where I no longer judge and only understand.
