Losing a loved one, whether through unexpected or anticipated circumstances, is always traumatic and can be one of the most stressful events in a person’s life. Adjusting to the new situation while being challenged by a multitude, urgent questions and decisions can be overwhelming. In addition, a wide array of emotions can be experienced, such as sadness, anger, anxiety, guilt and despair. All these feelings are normal parts of grieving, yet these feelings are hard to process and accept.
Whether you grieve the death of a spouse, a parent, a child, a friend, a colleague, a partner, a relative or any some your care for, bereavement is better when someone is providing professional support or someone that is present to see and feel your tears and fears. It is important to be validated through the process of grieving, understanding the personal stories, to help process the mourning. It is also helpful to create rituals, fill the void and establish new or strong bonds, to bear witness to your loss. The importance of having a safe place for grieving and ultimately healing process is paramount in building your resiliency and overcome the loss.
Individuals experience grief in their own unique way, partly based on religious, cultural, social, and personal beliefs and partly because of the relationship with the person who died. The process of bereavement requires time and support. spiral2grow of New York City can guide and help you through the grieving process to make it more complete and more positive.
