Have You Lost Someone You Love?
Coping with the death of a loved one is one of the most painful experiences in our lives, and grief is our emotional response to the pain and emptiness we’re feeling. While grief is normal and usually passes on its own; it can be overwhelming and challenging to deal with, especially since you’re dealing with many emotions at the same time. If you think that you’re having trouble coping by yourself or know someone who needs extra support during this difficult situation, I can help.
Different Types of Grief
There are different types of grief, and no two people will grieve exactly the same way.

Emotional States of Grief
Even though the grieving process is different for every individual, there are five emotional states that are commonly experienced.
Anger is a natural response to loss. We may feel angry with ourselves, with others, or with the situation. It is important to express our anger in healthy ways, such as through journaling, talking with a friend, or participating in an activity that allows us to release our emotions safely.
Bargaining is often a way of trying to regain control when we feel powerless over our situation. We may find ourselves making deals with God, fate, or others in an attempt to change the outcome.
Acceptance does not mean that we are happy about our loss. It is part of the healing process. By accepting the loss, we can deal with our feelings and achieve a peaceful resolution of our grief.
