Do you find yourself in shock or disbelief over a death or loss? Does it seem that you get angry over “little” things? or do you snap at others for no apparent reason? Are you asking “why…” or “if only…” questions about the loss? Are you finding yourself working longer hours or avoiding people or activities you use to connect with? Do you find yourself so sad that it effects your regular routine?
We have found through our years of counseling that grief tends to be a normal part of loss and that loss is experienced in many ways and levels at various times whether expected or not. It affects us a bit differently as we may also react differently as well. It can feel isolating at times to the point of pushing people or activities away causing conflict, missed days at work, strained relationships, frustration, crying spells, and many other things. Loss may come in the form of death, divorce, health, change in living arrangements (such as moving away or someone else moving away), job changes, as well as in other forms.
If you or someone you love is struggling with the effects of loss, seeking counseling is a way of finding solace and gaining comfort through loss.
