Grief Skills: Coping with Life’s Greatest Challenge
So a loved one has been tragically torn from your side! I am so very sorry for your loss, and extend my deepest sympathies to you.
Bereavement research has taught us a very important thing… there are no shortcuts when it comes to grief. The healthiest thing you can do is just surrender to the grief. Don’t try to fight it, deny it or avoid it. Many people try to escape from the pain of grief… with drugs, alcohol, oversleeping… even excessive reading or TV watching.
In the earliest stages of grief, it is important that you not “mess with” your grief, try to control or manipulate it. For, you see, grief is a miraculous process that provides just what you need, just when you need it. Trust the grief, and it will sweep you through to a successful conclusion, if you will just let it. And remember that things will eventually get better.
That being said, you need to know that there are some proven techniques and coping strategies that can make bereavement easier, more comfortable as you endure.
