Grief is a natural reaction to loss. It is as much a part of your emotions as joy and sadness and is not an illness. It can occur not only following a death but also as a result of major life changes such as:
• Separation or divorce
• Changing or losing your job
• Moving or migrating
• Children leaving home.
In some cases, loss may be felt for years or sometimes for a lifetime. If you are struggling to overcome your grief, can an Abate bereavement counsellor can provide a safe place to talk about feelings such as anger and resentment.
Exercise, such as walking, deep breathing or writing in a journal are other safe ways to release angry feelings, blame or resentment. For some people crying can be a great release.
