How do we get over grief? How do we move on from this tragic point in our lives?
In this week’s Mindset Monday, we will hear some thoughts from Coach Lynn as she shares her personal story and how she got over grief.
Here are the tools that she believes are important in the healing process from grief.
1) Recognize that grief is important.
When we suffer emotional pain, the first stage is denial. We tend to deny what’s happening and blind ourselves from the truth. But if we come to terms with the reality, we’re giving ourselves a favour. And this is where acceptance begins.
Start acknowledging that you are in grief and feel the pain. Cry it out. Tell yourself that you are in it and that you will be over it. Recognize that healing is a process but savour the pain as long as it lasts, until you know that life can be better from that point in time.
2) Recognize that everybody’s grief is different.
Now that you’ve acknowledged that you are in grief, find a way to get out from your present situation. If you need to read book about someone else’s moving on process, do so. But bear in mind that that your grief is different from everybody else’s grief.
3) Do something for yourself by getting outside yourself. Start giving back.
Instead of focusing on what you have lost, do yourself a favour and redirect your attention to yourself, in a way that will help your spiritual growth. You can do this by giving back to the community, going out with your loved ones, and have a genuine conversation with friends. The relationships that we have with other people will slowly dissipate the feeling of grief, and will replace it with memories that are worth remembering.
Fitlifer, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. It may be very difficult now but recognise that life comes in full circle. You can’t be stuck in the dark days forever.
There’s a life out there and you can reclaim that. You can do it!
Always remember, we’re in this together!
