5 of Cups. Honor your grief. Sadness is part of being human. Disappointment and loss are inevitable when your heart is open to love. To grieve is to have been touched by love.
Your emotional intelligence knows what is needed. Release the mind that judges your emotional response. It is appropriate to feel sadness, despair, sorrow. Your feelings are not things that need fixing. They belong only to you. They are not for others to fix or solve.
Be with yourself in your times of sadness. Showing up with compassion for yourself in aggrieved moments without judgement of how you “should/shouldn’t” be feeling expands your capacity to be present for others in their times of grieving.
You cannot heal what you won’t allow yourself to feel.
