Grief is not just something you can discard. Many people believe that grief is simply sadness and that just distracting yourself will make it go away with time. Although time does help, that’s mainly because healing grief can take a lot of time, and many of us do go through a process of intuitive healing, even if we don’t realize it.
In most cases, grief happens when we lose a loved one or a pet. We observe a period of grieving to allow ourselves to process those emotions, but that time is often not enough to do so. Sooner or later we find ourselves coping with life and living from day to day while grief turns into depression and continues to consume us from the inside out.
Dealing with grief can sometimes warrant the presence of a skilled psychologist with Kraig & Associates, but more often than not it requires the grieving person to face the debilitating emotions that they have inside. Doing so, they can rewire their perception and let go of the feeling that the thing they are grieving is something “elsewhere” and vague that is too frightening to look upon.
Once you actually look at it, though, the object of your grief is revealed in a clearer way, and you can start feeling a little dose of self-empowerment again at the thought that the hold the grief had on you was not as terrible and debilitating as you might have thought.
