GRIEF & HEALING
You Are Not Alone
Someone you love has just died. You are now faced with the difficult, but important, need to mourn. Mourning is the open expression of your thoughts and feelings regarding the death and the person who has just died. It is an essential part of healing. The following information provides some suggestions that may help you move toward healing in your journey of grief.
While dealing with grief, remember two important things: 1) Grief and mourning have no timeline. Your journey of grief is unique and will take as little or as much time as needed, depending on the distinct circumstances of your loss. 2) Taking breaks along the way is needed and necessary. Grief is not something you can do all at once. Experiencing so many feelings can be overwhelming. Instead, take in small doses of grief and mourning. Find yourself a haven in which you can take a break from all of the emotions. 3) Sometimes talking with someone who has already experienced grief can be very helpful. They can share with you tips on how they managed to get through the hardest moments.
Grief may never leave your side, but it will allow you to let go and venture forth on your own more and more as days, weeks, months, and years go by. Tap into your inner courage and accept the hand held out by grief.
What is grief ?
We often think of grief as strictly emotional, but grief often involves physical problems, including fatigue, nausea, lowered immunity, weight loss or weight gain, aches and pains, and insomnia.
