Grieving is our natural means of reacting to loss. It is the suffering we go through when we lose something that or someone who we cherish as dearly as our own lives.
Some samples of situations that are cause for sorrow are the following:
– a breakup with someone you have are in a relationship with – you lost your career – you lost the single opportunity to go after what you love doing the most – a member of the family tells you he or she has a deadly illness – the medical tests came in and you found out that you have a serious illness – you and your spouse are having a divorce – loss of a cherished friendship – the pet that you had for so long died – the person you love dies suddenly
These situations can all lead to an experience of grieving. Nevertheless, of all the scenarios given, it is the death of a loved one, such as a spouse, a son or daughter, or a parent, that gives so much sorrow. Nothing of this world can remove the emptiness that their death creates.
Our whole lives, we may have made the people who died the core of our own universe. Thus, life cannot be the same as it were when our loved ones were still alive. We grieve for what we have lost. Yet, in grieving, we have the hope of being able to mend our pains and will our lives to move forward once more.
All of us have the right to express our grief. Yet we must opt for healthy ways to express the pail, which can foster the healing that we need after experiencing loss.
It is common presumption that grief have to be expressed by crying our hearts out every time we recall our loved ones who passed away. Still, tears do not always signify sorrow. One can appear stoic on the outside yet suffer from the pain of loss within.
Grieving does not have a set duration, such as the “prescribed” time of just one year. The duration of the grieving process will be different for one individual compared with another. No one can hasten and instantly “get over” the grieving process. Time is a remarkable healer.
