Valuable Lessons I’ve Learned About Wellness

How to Deal With Grief We all have to deal with grief at one point in our lives. When confronted with the loss of a loved one be it a close family member or friend, dealing with grief can dominate your daily life. Everyone will have a time of grieving, but it will be different for each person. Some will move through it rapidly. For others, they stay stuck there and grief dominates their life for many years. Some have extreme emotions that lead to physical signs just like a lack of appetite or sleepless nights. Others will find their signs to be a bit mild like the occasional attack. The intensity of emotions as well as the time taken to grieve has nothing to do with how close you were to the deceased person. It has more to do with how balanced and healthy you are on the emotional, physical and spiritual planes. Many of the long standing or intensely felt grief comes from unresolved grief in the past. It becomes a pattern that is repeated. It’s as if you’re being offered opportunities to heal your grief in the hope that one day you may be able to manage it. The grief hails from a sense grief, a feeling of emptiness, that the deceased filled your lifestyle. This unfamiliar scenario can cause you to feel sad and lonely. Grief consists of five phases. The first one is when one switches into denial and shock. Next, these are followed by anger against the loved one or may be against God for making you go through such a difficult time. The third stage may be bargaining which will be then followed closely by depression or deep unhappiness with the final stage being acceptance.
