When grief is combined with regret, or anger we can become upset with ourselves, feeling as though our pain is in some ways a defeat or a betrayal that we shouldn’t have to bear.
It can be very useful in a situation where you may be grieving for someone who has hurt you, such as an abusive or neglectful parent or other toxic relationship. By placing our emotions into context with the help of counselling, we also come to understand that our grieving process is our own personal experience. It doesn’t have to conform to a time frame or fixed set of stages.
Because we each go through the grieving process in our own ways, it can be hard to share those feelings with others who are sharing our loss.
They may be experiencing their grief in a different way. In these situations, counselling is very valuable. You are able to address your grief without also having to deal with loved ones sharing your emotionally raw state. With help from Steadfast, you can communicate your feelings in a way that helps you come to terms with your loss, make sense of the grieving process, and move forward in your own life.
