Understand the grief and loss journey and discover the helpful techniques to help you overcome that period.
This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to cope with a loss of something special, and being able to move on with your life without the one you love.
Throughout the centuries, death has been something to be terrified about. The fear comes from the lack of knowing what it is like to experience the last breaths of life. For sure, no one knows exactly what it is like. What is certain is that death leaves a strong impression on us all, not so much as participants, but as witnesses.
In our lifetime, people who have had enjoyed our company will eventually wilt by some natural force. The process could be gradual as in growing old, or abrupt as in a fatal highway accident. But are we really prepared to accept such circumstances?
Grief is a strong emotional reaction to any event that involves the loss of a loved one. It is our way of saying that we cherish the warmth that that person brings. And it is our way of declaring the existence of a painful void in our hearts.
After the death of a loved one, we will inexorably feel depressed, melancholic and anxious towards an uncertain future without the presence of a significant someone. Grief then is a painful experience that not only affects you emotionally, but physically as well.
But we cannot really help but grieve if we face too great a loss. Going back to Tolstoy's passage, grief allows us to cope with the loss and lets us mature. Thus, we cannot really deny grief. We can only learn to nurture it and use it to strengthen our emotional and social lives.
This book will provide you with insights into the nature of grief and how to prevent it from being excessive.
