Struggling With Grief?Talk to us
Grief is a Natural Response
Grief is a natural emotional response to loss. It is the sadness and suffering you feel when someone or something dear to you is taken away. Pain of loss is real and can be overwhelming. The loss can come in so many forms, it’s nearly impossible to list them all. But categorically, here are some of the major areas of loss that can cause grief:
- Loss of a loved one
- Relationship breakup
- A pet
- A friend
- Loss of a job
- Loss of health
- Loss of money or financial stability
- Loss of income
- Loss of home
- Loss / realization of a dream or goal that will never be
Grieving is Highly Individual
The grieving process is very personal and highly individual experience. There is no right or wrong way to grieve, nor is there a proper timeframe for the grief to subside. Your current emotional stability, your personality, your strength and ability to cope, and in general your life experiences, all contribute to your grieving process. There is no normal when it comes to grief.
Healing Takes Time
The healing process takes time. There is no recipe or remedy, no timetable, no right or wrong. It can’t be forced. It can’t be hurried. How you grieve is completely in your hands. The most important consideration is patience. Allow the healing to happen; allow the process to unfold naturally.
The Stages of Grief
In 1969, Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, a psychiatrist, introduced the 5 stages of grief. These were initially based on patients facing terminal illness but have been found to apply to many grief situations.
While not every grief experience undergoes each of these stages, advancing to the next stage is a positive sign that you are resolving your feelings of grief.
