You have probably heard that time heals all wounds, or maybe you’re familiar with the phrase, “this too shall pass”. When you’re struggling with grief, these are some of the things you may think of or hear others say in effort to help you through the grieving process. After all, it’s hopeful to believe that just the passing of time will remedy the situation and bring healing to you. And while it’s possible that time alone may do just that, it’s very unlikely, and in reality it’s a dangerous gamble to make. Grief has the potential to stay with you for your whole life if it is left unprocessed. Processing your emotions as your grieving is a difficult task to face alone, but the load can become significantly lighter when you partner with a caring, experienced grief counselor or grief therapist. Thriveworks Roanoke Grief Counseling was established for the purpose of helping you to live a happy and successful life, and we believe that helping you to process and work through your time of grieving is a vital step toward helping you to regain your joy and happiness.
Most people understand that grieving is natural soon after the initial event that caused the grief. It is less commonly realized that triggers exist which can cause onsets of grief long after your initial loss, especially if that loss was the passing of a family member, close friend, or loved one. With each passing year, a loved one’s birthday or anniversary can bring with it a resurgence of emotions that you may have thought had been processed and overcome. Beyond that, each new milestone in your life, such as having a child or landing a new job, may now create complex feelings within you – you’re excited, but also upset that you can no longer share your news with the person you’ve lost. While it’s difficult to navigate these challenges, there is hope to move forward. At Thriveworks Roanoke Counseling, our team of highly trained, licensed professionals are ready to help you process your loss and find the “you” that you used to be.
