A Letter to Your Past Self. Do you continue to be weighed down by events in the past? Writing about those events honestly and from your heart can help you make meaning of what happened, as well as better understand others’ points of view.
A suggestion for writing: Write a letter to your past self—the self that went through the loss or trauma—from your today self. What would you say to comfort yourself? What advice would you give? Offer your past self the acceptance and love that s/he needs.
