How To Deal With Pain And Loss?

HOW TO DEAL WITH PAIN AND LOSS

Let me acknowledge something to you right now.

You’ll get better when you work through your loss.

May be slowly but surely.

In this post, I’ll walk you through the process of grieving and how to get back to normal.

When you lose someone or something very precious to you, the grief can be intense.

Pain, memories, and unanswered questions can haunt you.

Though there is no way to grieve without pain, there are healthy ways to grieve which allow you to move forward with your life.

How to Grieve Properly?

Ignoring the pain caused by the loss or distracting yourself will only work for so long, eventually, your grief will overtake you.

So,

Face your loss.

Allow yourself to cry or grieve in any other way that feels natural to you.

Give yourself a period of time to be profoundly sad.

Let your pain out. Let the tears flow.

If you’re compelled to do a certain activity as you grieve such as,

Crying, punching the pillow, going for a long run, throwing things out(don’t throw anything which you may regret later),screaming at the top of your lungs in a forest, and sketching your memories.

Whatever that is just do it.

And,

Avoid doing anything that might result in harm to yourself or to others.

Loss isn’t about inflicting harm or making things worse.

Getting Back To Normal

Focusing on negative thoughts or regrets won’t change what has happened. It will just make you feel worse.

So,

Try to remember the good times and the best memories you had with the person.

Every time you feel tempted to become even more sad or angry, grab a note or your phone and write down the good things you can remember about the person who died.

In moments of sadness, you can use this as a reminder of the happiness you had with that person.

Spend some time walking, contemplating and simply noticing the natural beauty around you.

Life does go on and you deserve to be a part of it.

Music can be a very soothing way to cope when you’re feeling loss and pain.

Try to listen to more upbeat songs not sad ones.

Time heals all wounds. Your emotional recovery may take weeks or months or even years and that’s okay.

In the meantime, you can eventually start honoring the person you lost through a renewed determination to enjoy your life to the fullest.

When we say, do, or think something that’s influenced by the memory of someone who’s gone, he or she lives on.

Key Takeaway

You’ll never stop feeling the loss of the loved one and you will never ever completely get over their deaths.

However, in time you will learn to live with the memories of that person informing your everyday life, so they don’t ever really leave you.

Remember the deceased would want you to continue living your life to its fullest.

So that’s how I overcome the pain and loss.
