Death is most likely one of the hardest pain and emotion to accept. For sometime after a loss of a loved one, numbness, denial, and avoidance takes place. With death happens in the cause, the emotions are painful and confusing. What takes place after one’s death is the mystery that triggers mix emotions. Hell no one wants to talk or deal with death. It’s a taboo that is faced when death happens. Death can not be prepared for. Understanding death can help the mourning process and stages of grief.

In fact death is one of the painful, life changing events a person must endure. There is no time frame to grief. Everyone is different, so many factors seperate how each person grieves.

Grief is a normal part of life and it is inevitable that we will all experience loss at some point in our lives. It can happen to anyone, but some people may be more susceptible to experiencing complicated grief after a loss that has affected them deeply.

Mental health professionals know that there are many ways to cope with difficult emotions, including complex grief. But as with any kind of therapy, the journey toward healing requires patience and commitment from both parties involved. If you are experiencing complicated grief after the death of someone close, take comfort knowing that help is available if needed.

The grieving process

Grief is a normal response to loss. The grief process is not linear; it can be experienced in many different ways and on different levels. There is no right or wrong way to grieve, but it’s important that you know what stage you’re in so that you can find the right support system for yourself.

The stages of grief are: shock and denial, anger, bargaining (a period where people say they will do anything if their loved one comes back), depression (depression may last longer than other stages), acceptance/movement forward with life without your loved one beside you

Overcoming Grief

Grieving is a process that many people go through after the death of a loved one. It’s normal to feel upset and confused, as well as angry and upset. You might also have feelings of guilt or depression.

The first step in coping with grief is acknowledging the fact that it’s happening to you—and that it’s okay! You don’t need to be alone in your emotions. Your family and friends are there for support, which can help ease some of those negative emotions so they don’t control your life completely.

Grieving involves many different stages: denial (the belief that nothing could ever hurt this much), anger (anger at God/demanding justice), bargaining (the attempt at getting something out of what happened instead of dealing with loss), depression (disappointment over having lost someone), acceptance (accepting reality without feeling guilty).

Signs you might be dealing with complicated grief

You might experience the following:

  • Difficulty adjusting to a new normal. The death of a loved one can bring up strong emotions and feelings that you never felt before, including anger, sadness and guilt. This can be difficult for people who are used to dealing with these emotions on their own.
  • Strong emotions. You may find yourself experiencing strong emotional reactions when you think about your loved one or even when looking at pictures of them in old pictures or memories from back then (or even now). These feelings may not just be sadness but also anger towards whoever caused such an awful tragedy; whether it was God or fate itself; they all have their part in all this mess!

When to seek professional help

If you are currently experiencing any of the following symptoms, it’s important to seek professional help:

  • Difficulty sleeping or staying asleep
  • Loss of appetite or overeating
  • Lack of concentration at work or school
  • Feeling hopeless and helpless about life in general

Experiencing loss is hard and it will take time to heal.

When you experience loss, it can be hard to think about the future. You may feel like there is no point in getting up in the morning because all that awaits is another day filled with sadness and pain. This feeling will pass, but it takes time for your brain to adjust back into normalcy after experiencing a trauma like this one. The best thing you can do while grieving is distance yourself from the event and try not to think about it too much or try too hard not to feel sad or angry (which can lead to more stress). It’s important that you don’t let yourself become overwhelmed by these emotions—just let them flow over you without trying too hard not to feel. Understanding that death is part of life is hard to accept. Grieving is not a quick process, its a process on your time. Depending on your closeness to the loved one, it can take months to years to accept the loss. There is no right or wrong grieving process.

As you can see, it is normal to experience grief after losing a loved one. There are many different stages that people go through when grieving, but eventually everyone will get through this process on their own time. One day at a time with no immediate decisions while grieving the loss if a loved one. It is important to not make any decisions. Those decisions, you may not be ready to make. You may feel a mental numbness or fog without clear focus. Take time to grieve then choice of decisions later. Remember take time to greive, its an important process of healing.
