Steps towards Recovery from Grief and Loss
After we lose our loved ones, it is not an easy thing to forget about them. We can take a different course that will help us cope with future with their absence. Life will not be the same though but we have to find a way to survive and get the burden of grief off our shoulders.
There are some stages of grief which can help us go through mourning and bereavement as we tend to live life without our loved ones.
It is necessary to understand rationally the kind of loss we have suffered. This will prevent great shocks and will be able to mourn and grief in normal periods. It will be of help to know how and why death occurred. This will help the process of mourning by shifting our focus back from the time the problems started not necessarily the hour of death.
We should also learn how to come into terms with the loss emotionally. We need to involve our hearts in the acceptance process so that no part of the body is left behind to cause a drag to the past. If we learn to confront every situation including death, then it will help us go through mourning process. This will also help us to get away from pain and remain with the happy memories we shared together.
We should rediscover selves as different people. When a person is gone, we can no longer identify ourselves with them especially where he was not known to people. This is what we mean by rediscovering ourselves.
You will need to discover that side of you that you never used to know before you lost your loved one. You can find out that there are things you can do for yourself which before you thought you could not. This will be part of the grieving for your loss and overcoming grief.
