6 Myths About Grief:

  Time Heals All Wounds

 Grieve Alone

  Be Strong

  Don’t Feel Bad

  Replace the Loss

  Keep Busy

 

Just looking at the myth that “time heals” creates the idea that a person just has to wait and they will feel better. We have known people who had waited 10, 20, 30, and 40 years, and still didn’t feel better. And, we know that they would tell you that not only had time not healed them, but that it had compounded the pain. The other five myths carry equally unhelpful messages.

The Grief Recovery Process - Emotionals Aspects of Grief 

 

 

 

 

The Definition

Simply defined, grief is the normal and natural reaction to significant emotional loss of any kind. While we never compare losses, any list would include death and divorce as obvious painful losses. Our list also includes many others; retirement, moving, pet loss, financial and health issues, among them.

The range of emotions associated with grief are as varied as there are people and personalities. There is no list of feelings that would adequately describe one person’s emotions, much less an entire society.

Grief is individual and unique. As every relationship is unique, so are the feelings and thoughts each person will have about the relationship that has been altered by death, divorce, or for other reasons.

43 Losses

 

There are 43 losses which can produce the range of emotions that we call Grief.

 

The long list includes:

 

  Death of a Loved One - including Wife, Husband, Brother, Sister, Grandparent and Pet

  Divorce, or the End of a Relationship

  Loss of Health

  Major Financial Changes

  Loss of Job, Career Change

  Moving, and many others

 

 

The Solution

Recovery from loss is accomplished by discovering and completing all of the undelivered communications that accrue in relationships. We are all advised to “Let Go,” and “Move On,” after losses of all kinds. Most of us would do that if we knew how.

 

"So much of life depends on how well we deal with the inevitable losses that occur. It is wonderful to know that something as helpful as The Grief Recovery Handbook exists to help those who are dealing with death, divorce, and other losses." - Jane Seymour, Award Winning Actress, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.

 

What Does Work? - Completion of Pain Caused by Loss

Completion of pain caused by loss is what allows us to Let Go and Move On. It is almost impossible to Move On without first taking a series of actions that lead to completion.

Before taking the actions to complete, it is important to look at and often dismiss some of the ideas for myths that we have tried to use with loss, but are which are not working.
