Sometimes life throws you some curve balls, life experiences you'd rather have avoided, and this is when you may think it's not a good idea to turn to your favorite hobby or even pick up a new one. You're wrong. You don't need to feel guilty about sitting down and knitting a few rows. This helps, you can't forget about yourself during the hard times. How are you supposed to move forward if you don't allow yourself to heal with some yarn therapy?
Playing with some string and a couple of sticks may seem silly but the sense of accomplishment when you walk away with a piece that helps keep someone warmer makes you feel a little better about yourself. Or making something to commemorate your strength during that tough time helps you visually experience your progress during the trial. Now, sit down and create something and let the healing begin.
