Transforming Grief into Motivation (via a Therapist)
How long have you been wallowing in grief? Going through an intense period of grief is normal. While the pain may not really totally dissipate, you’ll be able to accept your loss in due time so that you can start moving forward. If your grief seems to be getting worse or it has become the centerstage of your life, you have to do something about it. A proactive way of recovering from grief can be through the guidance of a qualified. licensed therapist.
Grieving is Personal
It is really hard to say when you should be recovering from your grief because it is a subjective and highly individual experience. Your ability to bounce back from grief is a function of several factors including your personal relationship with your faith, your past brushes with losses and tragedies, your support system, etc.
For instance, crying can help you release your pent up emotions, but that doesn’t mean that another person (perhaps a family member) who isn’t crying is not experiencing the same grief as you. Don’t conceal your feelings and welcome support from family and friends, but don’t let them drag you deeper into those feelings, particularly when they are not qualified to help you.
Knowing When to Consult a Therapist
After a tragic or painful loss of someone or something extremely valuable to you, expect to feel sadness, shock, even anger; the more important the loss, the more powerful the emotion. Some may feel harrowing feeling that you feel you’re going crazy; it is still normal.
You need to see a qualified therapist if the feeling persists for an unusually long time or it is taking over your life. If you observe that manifestations are getting worse, it will be good that you seek help before the emotion become more overwhelming. If you (or any grief-stricken family/friend) are manifesting other symptoms such as guilt, fear, anger and certain physical symptoms, don’t ignore them; see a therapist.
If you suffered a loss, don’t push grief away; it is a normal reaction. Accept the fact that you need to grieve; maybe you need to cry or be angry to be able to vent the bottled emotions. Be very vigilant, however, for signs of a more serious problem such as depression or complicated grief. See a therapist when you are certain that grief is preventing you from moving forward, or from functioning in your everyday life.
