How long can grief last?


The death of a parent, a loved one, a child, or a friend is a painful experience. You feel as if the world is falling apart because your grief is so great. Despite this, you must face it and, above all, move on. This is why people prefer to leave everything at the funeral home.

Apart from organizing the funeral, they also take care of the administrative side. People react differently to tragedy and sudden death. They feel anger, sadness, frustration, and sometimes even guilt. Unlike an illness, grief cannot be cured by treatment or surgery. It is a matter of state of mind. For some people, the situation may be easier to overcome, while it is much harder to cope with for others. This phase can also last for days, weeks, and even months.

It depends on the state of mind of the people and also on the relationship they had with the deceased. Thus, there is no set amount of time to get through grief. This is why it is best to seek help or support if you feel that you are having difficulty coping. Indeed, if these emotions are not well experienced, they can lead to more serious problems such as depression.

Where to turn for help?


The moment you start to feel that you no longer want to live, that you no longer sleep at night, and that you are on the verge of depression, you should seek help.

This therapy method actually works in the unconscious mind to help the patient understand his or her emotions and to push the patient to find the solution.

Usually, this therapy is used to heal certain psychic pathologies such as phobia, anxiety, etc. The psychoanalyst will ask you questions about your childhood. From this, he will determine where this inability to cope with a difficult situation or a tragedy comes from. In fact, it is quite possible that you link this ordeal to a situation that you experienced in your past and that seriously affected you.

In any case, you will be able to free yourself from this trauma. Talking to you will also help you externalize feelings and emotions that you have buried or have difficulty expressing. Therapy can take months, but you will gradually gain confidence as you continue. The desire to move forward and rebuild will gradually return.

Go out with friends to clear your head and share your feelings. You will realize that you are not alone and that you have friends you can count on. You should also know that when you are facing a difficult ordeal, you should avoid shutting yourself away and staying alone.
