Navigating Grief - Sakshi Singh


Dealing with someone you love

Losing someone you love is tough. It hurts, and you feel sad, confused, and lost. Whether it's a family member, friend, or even a pet, the pain is real. Let's talk about how people feel and cope when someone they love dies.

At first, it's a big shock. You might feel like everything is falling apart, and it's hard to believe it's real. You might feel numb or not really there.

Then, anger can kick in. You might feel mad at the world, yourself, or even the person who died. You might wonder why it happened and wish things were different. It's confusing because there are lots of mixed-up feelings.

Next, there's bargaining. You might try to make deals with yourself or with a higher power to change what happened. You might feel guilty or wish you could turn back time. But deep down, you know things can't go back to how they were.

Depression can hit hard. You realize the person you love is really gone, and life feels empty. Things that used to make you happy don't anymore. It's okay to feel sad and ask for help during this time.

Finally, there's acceptance. It's when you start to find peace with what happened. You know the pain won't go away completely, but you can still live your life. You find ways to remember and honor the person you lost.

Everyone copes with loss differently. But talking to friends, family, or a therapist can help you feel less alone. Doing things that make you feel good, like exercising or being creative, can also help. And finding ways to remember the person you love, like through rituals or acts of kindness, can bring comfort.

Losing someone you love is really tough, but with support and self-care, you can get through it. It's okay to feel sad, and healing takes time. Remember, you're not alone, and there's hope for brighter days ahead.
