Grief Counseling

How old are you?

Grief, also called grief, is a term used to describe the feeling of loss felt when a loved one dies or something is no longer in your life. The feeling of loss can come with a range of different emotions, including sadness, anger, anxiety, and guilt. While this is a normal process that everyone goes through sometimes, it can be a heavy experience, or it can produce particularly unmanageable emotions that cause “complicated grief” depending on the nature of their relationship with the deceased. This can then cause difficulties such as withdrawal, anger or even experiencing symptoms of depression.

At some point, we all have to face the feeling of losing someone or something we care deeply about. We can feel a range of emotions and feelings such as shock, emotional numbness, anger, guilt, and regret. We also become depressed, exhausted and depressed.

The loss may seem so monumental that we may feel we will never recover. Most of us eventually recover. But if we struggle to cope with difficult emotions and do not seek support, grief can potentially cause long-term psychological problems.

Grief and loss process

The first step of grief is usually shock and denial.

Denial follows him as he struggles to accept the reality of loss. You may find that activities are done for the person who is no longer with you, such as making a cup of tea or calling their phone, as if nothing had changed.

These feelings of denial can then turn into feelings of anger or even guilt. Such feelings can come in a variety of ways, from blaming others for our loss, being easily agitated, and causing emotional outbursts.

There can be a period of depression that brings symptoms such as insomnia, irritability, changes in appetite, physical aches, loss of motivation and social withdrawal. You may feel that life has no purpose anymore.

Finally, in a healthy cycle of grief, at some point a state of acceptance passes. It is believed that life must go on. You can still meditate on the person or thing you lost, but these thoughts become less intense and less frequent, allowing you to regain your energy and motivation.

Of course, reaching the final stage of this grief and mourning can take quite some time and is a process that should not be rushed.
