When Your Foundation is Shaken

In today’s day and time, we hear about “shaken foundations” all day/night with social media. 

The definition of a foundation is, “the lowest load-bearing part of a building, also an underlying principle of something, a starting point.”

What are some things that have shaken your foundation?

  • An illness of self or family
  • Something financial such as the loss of a job, a family member, a friend, a pet
  • The loss of a relationship

What to do:

Feel your feelings

Seek a friend or counseling to work through grief

What not to do:



Not cry

When our foundation is shaken it can be a starting point, even though it feels horrible at the time!
