How to Deal With Grief After Suffering a Painful Loss

Focus on your core values.
A good way to stay on track and actively focus on moving forward is to regularly check in with yourself about what you’re getting out of your life and what you’re doing to reach your goals. “It can really help people to direct their life in a meaningful way that brings joy instead of sitting too long in feelings of emptiness, which can derail you,” Ho says.

Try to do one thing each day that supports one of your values.
For example, if knowledge is important to you, read a new book on a topic you’ve been wanting to learn more about. If nourishing your body and mind is crucial to feeling full, spend time each week cooking a delicious meal.

Seek help if you need it.
There’s no single way to know when the time is right to ask for help, but don’t be afraid to seek out a professional therapist or even a trusted confidante, like a pastor or mentor, if you feel like you need extra guidance.

Remember, grief is not linear and does not fit into a neat box of phases. There will be both ups and downs during the process, but you should be able to feel sparks of hope, experience joy with loved ones, and take note of moments that make you feel happy as you cope in whatever way makes sense to you.
But when grief feels constant—as if there is no off-switch to your suffering—it can turn into full-blown depression. Some common signs include:
* Not being able to function in your day-to-day life
* Struggling to feel a range of emotions other than sadness
* Having strong feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness, or guilt
* Experiencing suicidial thoughts
1.
If you ever feel like you might hurt yourself, reach out for help immediately by dialing 911. For support, you can contact The Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741741 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK.

How to Deal With Grief After Suffering a Painful Loss

Engage in rituals.
If you lost a loved one, no matter how hard it may seem, it can be helpful to participate in funerals or memorial services because it gives you a chance to be around others who are grieving the same person you are.

Doing something on your own to honor someone’s memory can also be a source of comfort, such as creating a memory book to look back on, journaling, or engaging in that person’s favorite activity.

It can also be helpful to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, or other occasions that give you a chance to reflect. Even something as simple as lighting a candle on their birthday can help you feel positive memories of that person and spark conversation about them to help you feel less isolated.

Reframe your way of thinking.
One thing that goes hand-in-hand with grief are triggers. They can be something as innocuous as a particular smell or something more monumental like a major life event. One way to handle the often-unexpected wave of emotions is to simply feel them, really take note of them, then adjust.

“It can be painful to still be crying years down the line, but take a step back and think: This person was such an important part of your life that you still have these strong emotions, and that’s a beautiful thing and shows the strength of your relationship,” says Ho. “It’s not a bad thing.”

How to Deal With Grief After Suffering a Painful Loss

Be open about your feelings.
It’s important to identify individuals you’re comfortable sharing your feelings with. This can include family, friends, coworkers you’re close to, or people who have experienced a similar type of loss, such as a support group.
Don’t manage grief alone. If there was ever a time to lean on family and friends, this would be it. Let people know how you’re feeling and if you’re struggling. Share memories and experiences. Share tears, anger, and laughter. It will go a long way in managing this process.
If you’re the listening ear, be open-minded and ask what you can do to help instead of telling someone what you think will make them feel better. “There’s no timetable for grief, so the most important thing is to be a support, ask what you can do to make their life a little easier, and then listen to what they say.

Engage in rituals.

How to Deal With Grief After Suffering a Painful Loss, According to Mental Health Experts. With time and work, you can feel better—but that doesn’t necessarily happen in the “stages of grief.”

For those dealing with a loss, grief is painful, confusing, consuming, and detaching all at once. It’s hard for loving bystanders, too, who want so desperately to help but just don’t know how.

The process may seem cut and dry, but “there’s no one way that people grieve’.” Most commonly, grief follows the death of a loved one, but a feeling of intense loss can also follow a divorce or the end of a relationship (including a friendship), a miscarriage, or the loss of a job.

Of course, the most common emotion associated with loss is deep sadness. But there are plenty of other feelings you may experience during the grieving process. You may feel depressed, angry, fearful, anxious, exhausted, numb, isolated, or be in a state of denial, shock, or disbelief. You may even feel a sense of relief, which then leads to guilt.

This Is Your Body on Intermittent Pause

These feelings can set in at any time, bubble up without warning, and last as long as they’re meant to. They can also become overwhelming and even start to impact your physical health by disrupting your sleep and energy, appetite, and concentration.
“Some people grieve for years, and while they become more functional as time goes on, they may still get hit out of nowhere with grief-related feelings,” says Ho. “It’s important to be compassionate and understanding with yourself.”

Develop a routine—and stick to it.

Your day-to-day activities will feel different after a loss, and they’ll continue to evolve as time goes on. For some people, it’s business as usual—get up, go to work, and repeat. Others start out small, like making the bed each morning and remembering to make breakfast. It’s not important what your routine looks like, just try your best to have one. “Grief has a way of rocking our sense of safety, but routine creates stability, which often codes as safety.”

[02/17/21]   Family please pray for the Sister of Sis Sylvia Lewis,
Diane Morris, who is in need of prayer. Also, pray for Sisters Azzie Daniels and Mattie Goldsmith who's Sister completed this life's sojourn and joined the heavenly garden.

Psalm 119:50 (NSB)
This is my comfort in my affliction, That Your word has revived me.

The writer of Psalm, has discovered that God’s Word is a lamp to his feet, and a guiding light to direct his pathway. He expressed sheer delight, that God's Word is forever, and is firmly established in the heaven of heavens. No wonder he pleads: quicken me, according to thy Word O Lord.

The Psalmist discovered that the unfolding of God's Word gives wisdom and understanding to the simple, and becomes a hiding place in times of trouble. It is a shield through life's difficulty, sweeter to the taste than honey - and God has placed His Word above His holy name.

Knowing the value of Scripture, the Psalmist has wisely hidden God's Word, deep within in his heart, meditating upon it day and night - that he might not sin against the Lord.

Grief as a believer in Jesus Christ is deep and real, but it is not a Grief without HOPE. Even Jesus grieved when He stood outside the tomb of his friend Lazarus. Although He knew He would call Lazarus from the grave and raise him from the dead, the Bible says, “Jesus wept.” When Jesus wept, He demonstrated to us that God not only knows our grief, He feels it. We do not grieve alone or in isolation nor do we grieve without hope.

Confidence in heaven and the resurrection does not eliminate Grief, but it takes away the STING. That is why the Apostle Paul writes, “But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, ‘Death is swallowed up in victory. O death where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?’” (1 Corinthians 15:54).

Former Travis County Commissioner Ron Davis, advocate for East Austin community, dies at 75

Family please pray for Sis Nikki Toliver and family, her Brother Ron Davis of Austin passed.

statesman.com Ron Davis, who served on the Travis County Commissioners Court for 18 years, died Tuesday night of a heart attack. He was 75.

David, a man after God’s own heart, was famous for his Grief over the death of his son Absalom. Even though Absalom led a rebellion against David seeking to unseat him from the throne of Israel, when David heard that Absalom was dead, he was Inconsolable. David wept and cried, “O my son Absalom, my son, my son Absalom! Would I had died instead of you, O Absalom, my son, my son!” (2 Samuel 18:33). On another occasion, when David grieved over the death of another child, he said, “I will go to him, but he will not return to me” (2 Sam. 12:23).

Healing doesn’t mean the loss didn’t happen. It means that it no longer controls us.

People often say, “I don’t know how you’re doing it.” I tell them that I’m not. I’m not deciding to wake up in the morning. I just do. Then I put one foot in front of the other because there’s nothing else to do. Whether I like it or not, my life is continuing, and I have decided to be part of it.
