Get Help Dealing with Your Loss
Everyone will be different in their ability to adapt and move forward after a significant loss, and some people may need more help dealing with loss and learning to overcome it.
There are many emotions associated with grief. While we often think of sadness, it may also include feelings of:
These emotions can range from mild to severe, and may sometime leave you feeling confused as you try to process them. For example, losing a loved one to cancer may leave you feeling sad but also relieved that he or she no longer has to suffer. In some cases you may even feel at fault or to blame for the loss.
There is no right or wrong way to grieve, and no specific length of time that it should last. The way that you grieve will be unique to you, and may be influenced by your background, your relationships, and your personal and cultural beliefs. Some people find comfort in sharing feelings and being around people, while others prefer to grieve alone.
Seeking Grief Treatment
While grieving is normal, if you are struggling to process your feelings or don’t think you can manage those feelings on your own, it’s okay to seek help from a grief counselor or therapist. At Live Well Counseling, our counselors can help you work through various stages of grief, from denial and anger to bargaining, depression, and eventually acceptance. While not everyone will experience all of these stages, most people go through at least two. Our counseling services can also help you accept the reality of your loss, work through the grief and learn to adjust to life without the person or thing that is missing for you.
Grief can also be complicated by other things like depression and anxiety, and seeking help from a professional can help you work through all those things at the same time without starting to feel overwhelmed or unable to deal with it all.
