Grief

Hello everyone as always I hope you are well. Just a heads up I have a special post coming soon so be on the look out for that! But as for tonight let’s go back and talk a little more about the grieving system I have talked about previously on my ‘The least treated symptom’ post and let’s talk about what it is.

Grief – Grief may be cause through many reasons from losing a loved one to being diagnosed with an illness. Grief is a natural coping mechanism and should not be speed up nor should you try to stop. everyone adjusts to things differently and it is important that our psyches are allowed the time it needs to adjust to our situations.

Denial– Denial is a coping mechanism that gives you time to adjust to distressing situations.

Anger– Anger is an emotion characterized by antagonism toward someone or something you feel has deliberately done you wrong.

Bargaining– bargaining is characterised by attempting to negotiate with a higher power or someone or something you feel, whether realistically or not, that has some control over the situation. You may make promises to God in return for the painful situation not to occur or for things to go back to how they were

Depression– depression is a common and serious medical illness that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act. Depression causes feelings of sadness and/or a loss of interest in activities once enjoyed. It can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems and can decrease a person’s ability to function at work and at home.

Acceptance– Acceptance is when people begin to come to grips with their situation appetence doesn’t mean you with start to feel good or ok with your situation appearance is just about accepting the fact that your situation can not be changed

Once you hit acceptance you will be able to think more clearly. Which will allow you to look to the future more and start to plan for your future.

One thought on “Grief

  1. This was a powerful post! Dealing with the different stages is so darn difficult. Everyone takes each step in their own time. Some people may deal faster than others, but not rushing these steps is crucial!
