Ways to Deal With Grief We all must deal with grief at one stage in our lives. When faced with the loss of a loved one, either a close family member or friend, dealing with grief can take over your life. Everyone will have a time of grieving, but it will be different for each person. Some will move through it relatively quickly. For others, they stay stuck there and grief dominates their life for many years. Some have intense feelings that lead to physical symptoms like sleepless nights and a lack of appetite. Others will find their symptoms not serious such as the occasional attack. The time taken to grieve and the intensity of feelings has nothing to do with how close you were to the deceased person. It’s a lot more to do with how balanced and healthy you’re on the psychological, 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 includes has five stages. The first one is when one goes into shock and denial. 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.

Grief is a process of letting go. It enables you to go deeper to find the root of your issues. However, for some, they may not be able to overcome the pain. They can’t be disloyal to the memory of their dearly departed and they have a fear of letting go. Dealing with grief becomes this never ending block to moving forward. Society as a whole does maybe not provide help that is enough in terms of acceptance of grief and the holistic and wholesome allowance. Family members and friends, while meaning well, become impatient with you and may want one to get over it swiftly. Quick fixes are not quick in any way, and they do not help you to deal with the root problem. This means that this core issue festers and grows although hidden under the veil of the quick fix. When seeking to manage grief in a way that is curative, it is best just to accept it and know you will come through it and that it’s not a permanent state but just a process.
