We all deal with loss differently. Some of us “shut down” and keep to ourselves. Some of us seek out friends to be with and keep our minds occupied. Some of us turn to our family for support. Some of us listen to music or maybe write. Like I said, we all have our own ways of dealing with loss.
But which is the right way to deal with it? Answer? There is no right way to deal with loss. Even though a large group is dealing with the loss, you all have your own way of dealing with it. How do I deal with it? I write. It helps me get my thoughts out of my head and in front of me so I can read them and process the thoughts in a different manner.
However you deal with a loss in your life, know that there is a support group around you. It is always good to try other ways to deal with that loss. If people are reaching out to you to get you out and help take your mind off of the situation, do it. If people are offering you a listening ear, take advantage and tell them about the pain that you are feeling. You may have to step out of your comfort zone to do some of these but sometimes getting out of that zone is a good thing.
The unfortunate reality of dealing with a loss is that life will continue on. You are allowed to process your loss at your own speed and there is no correct time frame when it comes to healing. The important thing is that you “get back in the game” and continue on with your life. Again, not an easy step to take but a necessary for anyone in the healing process.
Whenever I write things like this, I always feel like I am stating the obvious, but sometimes we need some reassurance. In this case, you might just need a little reminder that it’s okay to continue on with your life, only when you feel you are ready. The one thing I can’t tell you here is when that time is. That is up to you but have no fear, you will know when that time is, I promise.
Lastly, if you are dealing with a loss or anything inside now or at any given time, feel free to reach out to me. If you know me on a personal level, hit my cell. If you’re just passing through my page and happen to read this, you can always reach out to me though email or on Social Media.
