Dealing With Death

Share:

Dealing with the death of a loved one is by far one of the hardest things you will ever have to live with. Losing a parent, spouse, sibling or even children can be devastatingly painful. Many of us understand that dying in itself is a natural part of life, yet we can still be overcome by shock and confusion, which sometimes lead to bouts of sadness or depression. With time, the intense feeling of sadness typically diminishes. However, the important thing to note is that grieving is an important process in order to overcome your loss. You can start by focusing on the wonderful experiences you had with your loved one.

 

Everyone reacts differently when it comes to coping with the death of a loved one. Some prefer support groups while others chose to seek out metaphysical avenues such as physics and or mediums to try and connect with their loved ones on the other side. The good thing is that you have many options to help you through the death and dying stages. It may take quite a few months or even years to come to terms with losing a loved one. There is no “standard” time for someone to grieve. Don’t expect to pass through the phases quickly, it takes time especially if you had a difficult relationship with the deceased.

Dealing With Loss

It is always a terrible thing when someone we love dies; it can be particularly hard if the death was sudden, or unexpected; perhaps there were unresolved issues between you and the other person, or maybe you feel upset because you didn’t get the chance to say goodbye. All of these feelings are perfectly normal and you shouldn’t feel bad for wanting to be left alone, so you can grieve properly.

Bereavement affects people in many different ways, yet there is a process known as the five stages of grief that all people experience. The bereaved person will go through all of these stages in the same order, yet they may spend different amounts of time in each stage. Some people get stuck in the first stage and need help from a counsellor or a psychic medium, before they are able to move on. The five stages, in order, are: Denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. It may take one person a couple of months to deal with their grief and another person may feel like they’ll never get over it. It all depends on the relationship between the bereaved person and the deceased.
