Five Tips to Cope with the Loss of Someone You Love

It’s human nature to mourn the loss of someone you love. You might feel sad, lost, or even angry because that person has left your life. As the saying goes, you may eventually heal with time as you go through the mourning process and cope with your life. Should you or someone be grieving over the loss of someone, the following five tips might help.

First, embrace vulnerability. Let yourself cry should you need to. Don’t let people, including yourself, invalidate your feelings. Just let them all out. Do not hold your emotions for too long.

Next, do things at your pace. Healing has an indefinite timeline so there’s no need to pressure and compare yourself to others. Others may recover in a matter of weeks, some may take months while some even last years. Just take all the time you need and you’ll heal eventually.

Also, remember to be kind to yourself. Always make sure to still look after your well-being and avoid harmful substances like alcohol. Likewise, don’t burden yourself with things you absolutely have zero control of. Learn to forgive yourself for your mistakes as much as you forgive others for their shortcomings too.

Apart from acknowledging your feelings, you should also avoid isolating yourself from others. Feeling strong by oppressing and bottling up your emotions will only do you more harm than good. Find a confidant to whom you can talk. Let them know of whatever support you may need. Make yourself vulnerable to the people you count on.

Lastly, in order for you to cope with the loss of someone you love, learn to look around you for the things and people you still have. You may have lost someone, but there are still people out there in your life who appreciate and count on you.

Grieving is a terrible experience. You feel a lot of emotions, even those you dislike. However, what’s important is that you let yourself feel them so that with time you may recover not only for yourself but for other people around you as well.
