Grief and loss are a part of the human condition. Grief is typically considered to be brought on by the death of a loved one, but can also be triggered by any significant life-altering loss (such as a divorce or the loss of a job). Grief is a natural response to loss, but that doesn’t make it easy to deal with. Symptoms of grief may include sadness, loneliness, anger, denial, depression and a myriad of other thoughts and feelings. There is no “normal” amount of time for grief to pass, but if you find that your grief is not improving over time or that it is interfering with your everyday life, you may want to consider seeking professional help. A qualified grief counselor can help you to cope with the physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and cognitive responses to loss. Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s grief experts today.
Questioning your belief system or processing negative experiences that occurred in religious or tight-knit social groups can be lonely. Those who speak up about their thoughts, feelings, and traumatic events within the community often feel shame, guilt, and isolation. Finding a confidante outside of your group is difficult because people, even professionals, do not always understand the culture you are coming from. This isolation often means you suffer quietly, feeling there is nowhere to turn.
