Give Yourself Time To Let It All Go
Many times, when we are sad or are grieving due to the fact that we have lost something or someone we held close to our hearts, we are advised to get over it and move on with our lives. Surely, we need to move on eventually. However, keeping it all inside you without coming to terms with our emotions can prove to be very counter-productive.
Once we are grieving, we need to face our losses adequately and get over them in the way we see the most fit. Usually, people need certain rituals in order to let something or someone go. This could be burning a precious item or a memory of someone, burying someone or something, throwing things away, or just letting it all out in a weeping bout when no one is watching. We, being the emotional beings that we are, need to deal with our pain and grief the way we see fit. There is no quick fix, nor can ignoring prove to be useful. We need to find our own closure, which will have a therapeutic effect upon us, letting us move on with our lives, leaving our grief behind.
How To Deal with Your Losses?
First of all, you are not supposed to keep it all locked inside you. Suppressed feelings are bound to win you over sooner or later. If you let them dwell inside you for too long, you might develop an illness which may express either physically or mentally.
Also, drugs and medications are not a constructive way of dealing with loss and grief. These provide temporary solutions and treat the symptoms rather than the problem inside you. Once the effects of the drugs wear off, the sorrow and grief will be back and, sooner or later, you will have to deal with them.
One of the best ways of dealing with pain, grief and sorrow inside you is to let it all out. You might choose to write a journal, or share it all with a family member or your best friend. Whichever way you choose, you need to expose these feelings. Alternatively, you might express them through exercising or group therapy.
Finally, we all have our ways of dealing with grief. You only need to be aware that, unless you yourself let it go, it will stay with you forever, tormenting your soul and getting out on its own eventually, being much worse that in the beginning.
