Coping With Grief
It’s generally accepted that grieving is a normal process, but unfortunately we don’t all know how to do it.
Many people wrongly assume that the funeral spells the end of the grieving process, when in actuality it’s often the beginning. Grief counselling — and occasionally grief therapy — can help people come to terms with their loss and move on with their lives.
Getting the right support is paramount, and not just from other family members and friends, but also from support groups and professionals.
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross defined what became known as the “five stages of grief ”, based on the feelings of patients facing terminal illness.
Denial: “This can’t be happening to me.”
Anger: “Why is this happening? Who is to blame?”
Bargaining: “Make this not happen, and in return I will ____.”
Depression: “I’m too sad to do anything.”
Acceptance: “I’m at peace with what happened.”
