Although we all know that loss is one of the few guarantees in life, we still are often completely unprepared to deal with it in a healthy way. There are many stages to the grief process. It is healthy to go through a wide range of emotions when dealing with the loss of a loved one. However, sometimes one of these stages becomes stalled, and even daily functioning becomes difficult.

Grief has many stages.

The stages of grief are denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and finally, acceptance. People go through these stages at many different speeds and intensities. A child experiences grief much differently than an adult. When an individual becomes stuck in any of the stages of grief before acceptance, this leads to unhealthy behaviors and thoughts. A person stuck in the stage of depression may become reclusive from friends and family, unable to stop crying, and lose interest in hobbies and activities they used to find enjoyable. Someone that is stuck in anger may lash out randomly, maybe even losing their job.

Whether you are experiencing the loss of a child, a spouse, a parent, a friend, or even a pet, there is no need to feel shame in your sadness.  There is no right or wrong way to deal with the loss of a loved one.  Even the loss of a pet can cause such disruption in your routine, that there are overwhelming daily reminders of how life used to be.  This can be difficult to process on your own.

We’re here to help.
