Bereavement Coping


When someone passes on, bereavement coping is something everyone will need deal with at some point. At first all you feel is pain. And that loss may bring out emotions that surprise you. Some of which you may have never realized you would be feeling when something like this happened.

Fear, anger, maybe even guilt are all overwhelming feelings of loss but are normal reactions. At that moment you find out you have lost someone, those feelings are helping you to cope. You probably donít even realize it.


Our tears and memories are already starting the healing process. They are helping us to grieve and relieve our anger. The hardest part with grieving is the question why? Once youíve come to terms that you may not ever find out the reason why and you allow yourself to feel those necessary feelings, you will start the healing process. And that's what bereavement coping is all about. Healing a deep wound in your heart.

Everyone grieves differently so donít look to someone else to tell you how you are going to cope with this loss. You just have to be strong and trust yourself and allow yourself to go through the stages of grief. These are denial, anger, bargaining, depression and finally acceptance.

You need to not ignore your feelings as this will only make the grieving process longer. There is no time frame for grieving, some people take longer to let go and others heal faster. But no matter how long it takes, they both had to allow themselves to grieve.

Finding support after a loss is a good first step. There is no need to go through this alone and having someone to talk to will help you to release any bottled up feelings. Turn to family or friends for support.


Or if you are a member of a church, you may find having that spiritual experience around you comforting. If you want to be around other people who are going through the same thing as you, a support group may be a good answer. And then of course there are therapists and grief counselors to help walk you through the stages of grief.


Whatever you have decided is the best way for you to deal with your grief, the important thing you need to remember is that you are not alone. Reach out to people, and take the hand of anyone reaching out to you. You may not see if at first, but there are a lot of people around you who are willing to lend a ear or be a friend.


You will also be receiving lots of condolence messages, sympathy phrases and bereavement letters. As at first you may not feel like reading them, in time, they might be of some comfort to know how many people care.
