Dealing with sorrow…

The grief from the death of someone deeply loved cannot be mastered or conquered. You can learn to live with your great loss; there will be healing and health and yes, even joy again. But there can never be full “recovery” or a return to an untroubled past.

As the years go by, life has a way of dealing it’s pain and challenges to everyone. And the longer you live, the greater your chances of being hit by a major grief. And there is no easy way out or quick cure for it. Such is life.

You may be tempted to lessen this tragedy in your life by numbing your mind with alcohol or drugs, or escape from it by reading or watching TV incessantly. But it is an important part of eventual grief resolution that you experience and express grief fully, especially in the beginning.

It’s only later, when you figure out that you need to function again, go to work without breaking down in the middle of a board meeting, that you will need some coping methods to help get you through the day. And we will provide them for you here.

Just don’t try to repress your grief too soon, or you’ll just have to deal with the whole painful process later in your life. And it will be more difficult and complicated later on. Sooner is better than later when it comes to bereavement.

     GETTING OUTSIDE HELP  


 

Dealing with sorrow…

SUPPORT GROUPS

Find others who have lost a loved one to talk to. A support group can give encouragement, guidance, comfort, and practical suggestions. They can lend a sympathetic ear when your friends and family have grown tired of hearing about it (and they will). Find a list of some good local support groups and online forums here:  OUTSIDE HELP.

PROFESSIONAL COUNSELING

If your grief seems like it is just too much to bear, seek professional assistance to help work through your grief. It’s a sign of strength, not weakness. Get some counseling especially if your grief seems to be damaging your marriage or family relationships.
