How Do You Deal With Grief? We all have to deal with grief at one point 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 is going to be different for every person. Some will move through it relatively quickly. For the others, they stay stuck there, and grief dominates their lifestyle for many years. Some have intense feelings that lead to physical symptoms like sleepless nights and a lack of appetite. Others will find their symptoms to be a bit mild like the occasional attack. The intensity of emotions as well as the time taken to grieve 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. Most of the long standing felt grief comes from grief in the past that is unresolved. It becomes a routine which is repeated. It is as if you are being given chances to heal your grief in the hope that one day you will be able to deal with it. The grief comes from a perception of grief, a feeling of emptiness that the one you loved filled your life. This unfamiliar scenario can cause you to feel sad and lonely. Grief consists of five phases. The first one is when one switches into denial and shock. Next, these are replaced by anger 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 that will be then followed by deep sadness or depression with all 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 let go of the pain. They will not be disloyal to the memory of their departed, and they fear 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 quick in any way, and they do not help you 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 seeking to manage grief in a way that is curative, it is best just to accept it and know you will come through it and that it’s not a permanent state but just a process.
