Grief and loss, how do you deal?
We asked people across the world how do they deal with grief. The answers may surprise you. Many of us have not processed grief because we don’t even know we are living in the loss of it all. Here are some of the ways people deal with their grief…
-I pray & surround myself with people who love and support me
-Face it, acknowledge it and then accept it
-I allow myself to cry or be into my feelings so that I am not carrying that with me during my full journey
-I have faced grief often in my life. With each lost it was dealt with and processed differently because of the different kind of hurt or loss. I found that work with a skilled Grief Counselor and taking it “easy” on myself was best. By not rushing the process and allowing the flow of the experience to happen in its divine timing was best
-Prayer and meditation. I must come to terms with the loss. I recognize this may take time. I like to journal to release the emotions onto paper
-I cry it’s a relief
-Take some time for myself to compose myself and when ready and able to talk about it, I do
-Feeling my Feelings All the Way Through
-By talking about it with someone you trust
-Grief is one of those things I think nobody really deals with. We learn how to bear it. We grow around our grief, but it never leaves us
-I cry, I write, I pray, I scream. Depending on the level of grief determines how I will deal with it
-I don’t know that I have an answer for this question
-One step at a time
-Take a moment for myself and use it to fuel my dreams
-I am dealing with grief everyday and quite frankly, sometimes it deals with me. What I mean by that is, if I haven’t slowed down to give space to my grief and I try to continue on, avoiding it-it will overcome me. So I try and give space to my grief, I cry, write, sleep and then I remember the good times that preceded the grief and the lessons learned because of the grief
-Grief is situational with me now that having a greater understanding of emotions and feelings. Meditation and speaking time in quietness listening to Spirit and the ancestors guide and direct me through is the way for me
Sometimes we just don’t know how. Are you ready for the conversation?
