It’s Good To Talk
If you have been completely absorbed in arranging a funeral for a loved one, it is often afterwards, that the feelings of grief and loss begin to sink in.
Losing someone or something you love or care deeply about is very painful. You may experience all kinds of difficult emotions and it may feel like the pain and sadness you’re experiencing will never let up. These are normal reactions to a significant loss. But while there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there are healthy ways to cope with the pain that, in time, can renew you and permit you to move on. Most grieving people need to speak about their feelings of grief, the loneliness, sadness and depression and ‘tell their story’ to make living more tolerable. Talking about your loss in reality will help you to heal and work through the process of grief, so try to find people who will listen to you and help you feel understood and not so alone.
We also suggest Cruse Bereavement Care who exist to promote the well-being of bereaved people and to offer bereavement support to those who have suffered the death of a friend or family member to understand their grief and cope with their loss. www.crusebereavementcare.org.uk
Remember: If you’re having trouble moving forward, or feel like you’re “stuck” going back and forth between emotions, it may be helpful to get some assistance from a counselor, therapist, or bereavement support group.
