Recovering from Emotional Crisis in the Family
A family may struggle with emotional crisis when experiencing some kind of change or loss. It could be the death of a loved one or the end of a relationship. It could also be the loss of health due to an illness or accident, or perhaps it’s about the loss of a job or a house. In these events, family members grieve the loss of someone or something considered important. While grief can be almost an unbearable feeling, it’s a process necessary for healing and recovery.
Who's taking the reins?
During an emotional crisis in the family, children badly need to feel they’re safe and they have someone to rely on. But, how do you react when you also need to handle the surge of overwhelming emotions of anger, guilt, anxiety, sadness, helplessness, etc.? You may not want to display these feelings. Showing your sadness can be painful to the kids; letting them see your anger can lead them to believe the loss is their fault. The truth is, even there’s so many means to react, there’s no way to hide your miseries. The children would know and it sets them off to their own crisis. Unlike you, your kids express their feelings in actions instead of words.
The Onslaught of symptoms in the Family
Grief has a reputation for overstaying. There’s no instant remedy to alleviate the intense emotions that accompany it. You may feel affected every day for months to a year or more. While the key feelings aren’t subsiding, you’ll most likely lose sleep, experience emotional turmoil, become accident-prone, and feel depressed.
The children’s reaction may vary differently depending on age, but generally they will tend to be scared of things associated with the crisis, like strangers or loud noises. There may be loss of interest in school or activities previously enjoyed, and they may exhibit behavioral problems in multiple settings. Other symptoms include thumb-sucking and bed-wetting for younger kids; the older ones may show physical signs such as antisocial behavior, lack of energy, skin problems, etc.
Tightening Your Hold
As a parent, you may be worried that you’re not adequately responding to the emotional needs of your children as you should. You recognize their need to draw strength from you, but it can be difficult to look after your family if you’re lost in your own emotional distress as well. It means you also need to be concerned about yourself to be able to do this.
There’s a lot of help and support available for you and your family. Carolina Counseling Services would like you to know that you’re not alone during this stressful time. Just make a call to request an appointment. Let us help you meet your needs so you can experience joy as a family once again after an emotional crisis.
