Grief and loss

Every person deals differently with grief and loss.

As we get older it becomes more difficult to handle loss.  We get attached to things and into routines and comfortable with the people who are around us.

Loss can be many things.  The loss of a friend, loved one, pet or well anything.   Grief accompanies loss even when the loss is not necessarily a bad thing.

There is no right or wrong way to experience grief, nor is there a right or wrong way to help someone through their grief.  The best way is to continue communicating, but also to allow the person who is grieving the space and time to do so.

Some people may seem fine one day and then not be another and need more support.  This can be extremely frustrating for family or other in the relationship that are not at the same place with their grief.  Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

Grief can last a long time.  Little things can return you to the past memories and stir it back up.  Know that over time grief should lessen, the memory of the good times should make you happy and not sad.  Life needs to continue.

Remember that talking to those you are close to can help relieve the feeling of grief, sadness and helplessness.  Closing down is never the answer to dealing with grief.  Talking about your feelings with those who are close to you or a professional always helps clear the air.

I have many different hats that I wear. Throughout my life I have been many different things: a small business owner, problem solver, mother, friend, sister, writer, designer, employee, manager, consultant, gamer, leader and many more buzz words that I can't think of. Many of these I still do, but some I have let go to focus more on the here and now. I like to share my experiences, ideas and funny things I run across. Ask me something and I will provide an honest and likely unfiltered opinion. I am still learning about life, myself, relationships, parenting and well everything else. I am not superwoman and don't really have my life together, but I manage and am willing to share my tips and learnings. Writing for me can be cathartic and sharing makes us not feel so alone in this crazy, mess of a world we currently inhabit.
