Grief and loss is a unique type of sadness. Grief and loss can be complicated dependent on the type of relationship you had with the departed.
When you experience a loss, people may tell you to “be happy they aren’t in pain anymore” or “at least you had them for as long as you did.” These sayings may come from a good place, but it doesn’t capture the depth of what it means to lose someone, especially a parent, caregiver, partner, spouse, family member or friend.
Grief comes in waves. Your first reaction may be shock and then you may become busy with taking care of final affairs and arrangements. After those things are over, the silence begins and the journey of grief is ever present.
How long does it take to get over loss?
That answer is unique for everyone. It could be months, but the grief journey doesn’t always fully end because you will always remember the departed. If intense grief lasts longer than a year and is affecting your mood, your job, relationships, and you are showing signs of depression, it is beneficial to see a grief counselor.
What if my relationship with the departed was complicated?
If your relationship was complicated, you may go through a wave of emotions like sadness, anger, or confusion. Grief counseling and therapy is a safe place to explore and process these feelings without judgement.
