Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things to deal with in life. Watchwellcast gives suggestions to help you cope during your grieving process.
The first point to understand is that there is no right or wrong way to deal with the loss of a loved one. Every person’s experience with grief is different and your process of dealing with it will vary.
Coping with loss also means coping with change, and that takes a lot of time. During the grieving process you’ll likely experience these stages of grief in some way or another:
1: Denial 2: Anger 3: Bargaining 4: Depression 5: Acceptance
It’s natural to have an uneven journey with your grief. You can expect to have good days and bad days, so it’s important not to be afraid of the pain.
According to Watchwellcast, in order for you to work through your grief you must first acknowledge that it exists. For some people, being alone helps to confront your pain head-on. For other people, writing helps and Novni can be a great outlet for you to express your feelings anonymously.
When you’re grieving one of the best things you can do is talk to someone about how you’re feeling or try to do things that make you happy. If you neglect your physical health while grieving, it will only take a greater toll on your mental health.
Take care of yourself the best you can and reach out to friends or family whenever the burden becomes too much to bear. The most important piece of advice that Watchwellcast gives is that “You do not have to be alone in your grief”.
Going to someone else for help when your feelings become too overwhelming is not a sign of weakness. Allowing yourself to be vulnerable is actually a sign of strength for acknowledging that you need help to get through this difficult period. Nobody knows your pain exactly, but talking about it can be cathartic and help you cope.
