Coping with the Loss of a Loved One
Saying goodbye to a loved one is never easy. Healing and coping with grief is even harder.
Start with acknowledging your pain. Whatever it is you’re feeling: anger, sadness, confusion, loneliness, frustration, resentment, shock, disbelief, guilt, regret, emptiness, confusion, or fear, know that these feelings are normal and common reactions to loss and that they’re valid. Accept that you’re hurting instead of repressing these negative emotions.
Find ways to express your emotions and thoughts. You may find it helpful to tell the story of your loss to a trusted friend, a therapist, a spiritual counselor, or through a journal. Others translate their emotions through painting or writing a poem, and some deal with grief through Music Therapy. Find what works for you. What matters is that you get to deal with these emotions healthily.
Deal with feelings of emptiness by doing something positive that makes you feel good or an activity that gives your life a new meaning. Sign up for volunteer work, join fun recreational activities, start a new hobby, or maybe travel the world!
