Are you struggling to cope with a stressful relationship breakup or death of a loved one?
Losing someone or something you love is very painful. After a significant loss, you may experience all kinds of difficult and surprising emotions, such as shock, anger and guilt. Sometimes it may feel like the sadness will never let up. As you deal with your loss, remember that it’s important to be patient with yourself and allow the pain to pass.
Pain is inevitable, but suffering is a choice – your loved one would never want you to suffer. We can get so locked into grieving and depression that it is easy to forget those who are living.
Loss is a personal trauma that can feel overwhelming. It is helpful to allow your feelings to be whatever they are, to just accept any emotions of guilt, anger, blame, regret and sorrow.
We begin the desparate road of asking non answerable questions, looking for all that we personally could have done differently. What others could or could not have done. Prolonged emotional pain can change brain chemistry that leads to depression and isolation. It is useful to distract yourself to keep your spirits up, but sooner or later you will benefit from getting making peace with your loss in whatever way helps you.
