How to Deal With Grief We all must deal with grief at one stage in our lives. When confronted with the loss of a loved one be it a close family member or friend, dealing with grief can dominate your daily life. Everyone will have a time of grieving, but it will be different for each person. Some will move through it fairly quickly. For the others, they stay stuck there and grief dominates their life for many years. Some have intense feelings that lead to physical symptoms like a lack of appetite or sleepless nights. Others will find their symptoms to be a bit mild like the occasional attack. The time taken to grieve and the intensity of feelings has nothing to do with how close you were to the deceased person. It has a lot more to do with how healthy and balanced you’re on the physical, emotional and spiritual planes. Many of the long standing or intensely felt grief comes from unresolved grief in the past. It becomes a routine which is repeated. It’s as if you’re being offered opportunities to heal your grief in the hope that one day you may be able to manage it. The grief comes from a perception of grief, a feeling of emptiness that the one you loved filled your life. This circumstance can make you feel lonely and sad. Grief consists of five phases. The first one is when one switches into denial and shock. Next, these are followed by rage against the loved one for leaving you or may be against God for making you go through such a trying time. The third stage may be bargaining which will be then followed closely by depression or deep unhappiness with the final stage being acceptance.

Grief is a process of letting go. It enables you to go deeper to find the root of your issues. However, for some, they may not be able to overcome the pain. They can’t be disloyal to the memory of their dearly departed and they have a fear of letting go. Dealing with grief becomes this never ending obstacle to moving forward. Society as a whole doesn’t offer enough help in terms of the holistic and healthy allowance and acceptance of grief. Family members and friends, while meaning well, become impatient with you and may want you to get over it quickly. Quick fixes are not speedy in any way, and they do not aid one to deal with the root problem. This means that the core issue festers and grows although concealed under the veil of the quick fix. When trying to deal with grief in a curative way, it is best to accept it and know that it is not a permanent state but just a process and that you will come through it.
