Following on from this, Yourwellness Magazine explored coping with grief. Yourwellness Magazine commented, ‘When a loved one dies, it can feel like the end of the world. You cannot imagine how you can possibly go on without them. Death is such a difficult and unexplainable thing that people often have a really hard time coming to terms with it. After the initial shock (which happens even if the death was expected, such as after a long illness), people vary hugely in the way that they deal with grief. If you are mourning a loved one, you should understand that it is totally normal and acceptable to have varying ways of dealing with grief. In fact, grieving is healthy, and going through this process (rather than locking emotions away) is the right thing to do for your family wellness.’ (http://www.yourwellness.com/2012/12/coping-with-grief/#sthash.vDrPGePw.dpuf)
Yourwellness Magazine noted that people often go through the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depressing and acceptance. Yourwellness Magazine explained that recognising there are different ways of dealing with grief can help people to avoid you feeling confused when experiencing an emotion they did not expect, such as anger. Yourwellness Magazine added that seeking out support from close friends and family members is a good idea, as some of them may also be going through a similar grieving process. It may also help grievers to find a personal way of saying goodbye to the loved one, whether that’s with a balloon release or by writing them a dedication or poem.
