Let Go of the Sorrow; Hold On to the Love

The death or loss of a loved one or friend is one of the most difficult experiences many people face in life. Grieving is a process which usually evolves in stages whether it is after a long illness or a sudden unexpected death. 

The 5 Stages of Grief 

1. Denial: This can't be happening.

2. Anger: Why is this happening? Who is to blame?

3. Bargaining: Make this not happen and in return I will_______.

4. Depression: I'm too sad to do anything.

5. Acceptance: I'm at peace with what happened.

Not everyone goes through all of these stages and one may experience returning to a previous stage or going back and forth between stages.

 

The stages of grieving can be complicated by:

  • The relationship you had with the person.
  • The way the person died.
  • If any issues between you were unresolved.
  • If you felt responsible in some way for the death, or did not feel you had a chance to say goodbye or say something important to the person before they passed.

Grief counseling helps the grieving person work through these stages in a supportive, safe, and caring environment. 

 

Grief counseling helps you:

  • Process your thoughts, feelings, and emotions related to the death and going on in life without your loved one in physical form.
  • Resolve issues and feelings related to your loved one so you may come to a place of forgiveness and peace with that person and yourself.
  • Heal any trauma caused by how the death happened.
  • Experience acceptance with finality.

We will always feel a sense of loss and missing our loved one. However, we can keep them in our hearts and minds as we honor the love we shared as one of the greatest gifts we received and gave each other.
