Coping with grief and injury claim compensation in Sevenoaks following the death of a loved one
Grief is something that everyone will have to deal with at some point or another. For people coping with grief for the first time, or dealing with the death of someone who was very close to them, it can be incredibly difficult to know how to cope with the feelings of grief that start to take over soon after learning of the death.
Grief is an emotion which can stick around for a long time, and make the person suffering it feel as though they will never feel better. Like heartbreak, it is a feeling which takes over every moment of every day, but in the case of grief many people feel that they should be feeling this way, and actually feel guilt when the feeling starts to subside. Whatever stage you are at, here are some ways to cope with grief.
What is grief?
To understand grief and start to cope with it, you first need to know what it is!
- Thoughts about and memories of the person that died
- Sadness and angry feelings
- Physical reactions such as a upset stomach, nausea, loss of sleep and appetite, low energy and so on
Grief doesn’t have to be for someone that has died, it can also happen when someone you love moves away or a relationship breaks down. Grief is simply about loss, and it is no less painful just because the person hasn’t actually died. Grieving is also a process which you will need to go through, and may take some time to be fully recovered from.
How to feel better
You need to be aware that every day you are getting a little closer to feeling better about what has happened, and getting back to your normal life. It is normal to eventually move on from grief, and you should never feel guilty that you are no longer grieving for someone who has died.
