Thank you for writing this! Why is it that we all know that death is one of those inevitable parts of life but then we are so surprised when it happens to someone that we love? I think that there should be a way that we could get more prepared for it, knowing that it is going to happen, but I guess that in some ways there is no way that you could ever prepare for losing someone that you love so much. I have been through it many times, and there have been times that it seemed like such a blessing that the pain was finally over for this person and then there have been times when it felt like the life was cut far too short.
Allowing yourself to go through the entire grief process though and not suppressing nay of that, so much healthier than trying to be stoic and moving on. There is a reason and a purpose to the process, so allow yourself to experience it. We can all be selfish and even knowing that this is better for the person who was hurting does not make it any easier for us here on earth without them.
Very well explained and informative. Grieving is a very hard and sad topic to discuss. Many of us question ourselves about why we even exist or have children. The thought of death causes me to worry, which in turn triggers my headaches and transforms me into an angry person. I become angry because I know I am powerless and cannot prevent death from invading my world; even angrier by the realization that I cannot resurrect a dead love one.
We need to continue this thread because it is powerful enough to help someone who is broken by the passing of a loved one, after all, we know that there is strength in numbers. But this seems to be the only experience ever spoken about. Other loss can be devastating and even more difficult to understand, and it would be good to see that acknowledged and written about more often.
Eventually this too shall pass but only if you do allow yourself to really go through and process all of the steps that grief will leave behind. There will be sorrow, there will be anger, and there will be denial… and if you let yourself fully feel and experience all these things, eventually there can be sunshine in your life again. I am not saying that it will happen quickly but there will come a peace about that loss that makes coping with it all just a little bit easier.
Lessons in Loss: What We Can Learn from Grief
Thank you for reminding us of the silver lining that comes with grief. Several years after losing my dad to cancer I started to have all of these angry feelings like why was he taken and not someone else. I felt like I had to stay so strong for my mother that I did not give myself the chance to experience the same kinds of things that me being there for her allowed her to do. I had to stay strong for her. And eventually that all had to come out and come to the surface because I needed those same chances to process my own hurt and feelings.
This is a very informative article! Grief is indeed an individual experience. We are likely to mourn, or cope with grief, in personal ways.
