A very natural and common response to loss is grief. It is identified as the emotional pain you feel when something or someone is taken away from you. Most commonly, grief is associated with the death of a loved one, which causes the largest amount of pain. It’s important to note that any loss can cause grief though and that each is unique in its own way relating to each individual person.
The following are just a few examples but the list is endless because it relates to your own perception of what loss is.
The way in which you grieve depends on several factors: your unique personality, life experiences and how you cope, faith/spirituality and several more factors. Grieving does take time. Healing happens at a gradual rate; and cannot be forced. Some may feel better in just a few weeks or months. For others grieving may take years. The key is to be patient with yourself and to not judge the process but to allow it to unfold naturally.
Finding support is the key to overcoming loss. Getting plugged into others will allow you to express your feelings, emotions and develop a sense of community at a time when it is easy to isolate.
Counseling along with support groups allows you to work through the various stages of grief and process each stage to completion. In therapy you will feel safe to express your fears, anxieties, shock, sadness, etc. These feeling you have at the same time.
