Help Coping with Grief and Loss
Grieving is a very personal and individual process. How you deal with your loss may differ from how someone else processes grief. Most people go through various stages. According to the Kübler-Ross model, the stages are denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. However, it is important that you process your grief at your own pace and in your own way.
When you need support, advice and guidance to handle incapacitating loss, well meaning family and friends can provide support. However, they are sometimes not able to understand, nor do they have the training and experience to help you process your grief. Your friends and family also might not be able to handle seeing you in pain and it just might be too much for them. In other cases, they might think you should just “get over it” and not have the compassion or empathy to really support you.
