There is no right or wrong way to grieve, but the mourning process has safe ways of dealing with it.
Grief is a reaction to loss that is normal. It is the mental pain you experience when you take away something or someone you love. The pain of loss can sometimes feel overwhelming. From shock or indignation to denial, remorse, and deep sorrow, you can feel all sorts of difficult and unexpected emotions. Your physical wellbeing can also be affected by the agony of grief, making it hard to sleep, eat, or even think straight. These are natural reactions to loss, and the greater the loss, the more severe your grief is going to be.
One of the toughest difficulties of life is dealing with the loss of someone or something you love. You can associate grief with a loved one's death, which is often the cause of the most extreme kind of grief, but any loss can lead to grief, including:
Divorce or breakup of relationship
Having lost a career
Financial stability loss
Seeing a miscarriage
A pet's death
Loss of a dream cherished
Severe disease of a loved one
Loss of a partnership
The lack of protection following trauma
Selling the house to the family
A sense of sorrow may be caused by even subtle losses in life. For instance, after moving away from home, graduating from college, or changing jobs, you may grieve.
It's personal to you, whatever your loss, so don't feel ashamed about how you feel, or think that somehow it's only acceptable to grieve over such items. It's natural to grieve the loss you're feeling if the individual, animal, relationship, or circumstance is important to you. However, whatever the cause of your sorrow, there are safe ways of coping with the pain that will relieve your disappointment in time and help you cope with your loss, find new purpose, and finally move on with your life.
The grieving process
Grieving is an experience that is deeply personal; there is no right or wrong way to grieve. How you grieve depends on many variables, including your attitude and style of coping, your experience of life, your religion, and how important the loss was to you.
The grieving process, naturally, takes time. Gradually, healing happens; it can not be forced or rushed, and there is no "normal" mourning schedule. In weeks or months, some people start to feel better. For some, the period of mourning is calculated in years. Whatever your experience of grief, it is important to be gentle with yourself and allow the process to unfold naturally.
How to deal with the grieving process
There are ways to help deal with the pain, come to terms with your grief, and finally, find a way to pick up the pieces and move on with your life while mourning a loss is an inevitable part of life.
Recognise the pain.
Agree that grief can trigger many feelings that are different and unexpected.
Understand that it will be special to you in your mourning process.
Seek face-to-face assistance from individuals who care for you.
Help yourself emotionally by physically taking care of yourself.
Recognize the difference between depression and grief.
The five stages of grief
Denial: "It can't happen to me.
Anger: "Why is this occurring?" Who is at fault? ”
Bargaining: "Do not make this happen, and I will ____" in return.
Depression: "I'm too sad for anything to be done."
Acceptance: "With what happened, I am at ease."
If you experience any of these feelings after a loss, understanding that your reaction is normal and that you will recover in time will help. Not everybody who grieves, though, goes through all of these processes, and that's all right. Contrary to common belief, in order to heal, you do not have to go through each level. Some individuals, in fact, overcome their grief without going through either of these processes. And if you go through these stages of grief, in a neat, linear order, you probably won't experience them, so don't think about what you're supposed to feel or what point you're supposed to be at.
