WHY PEOPLE FIND IT DIFFICULT TO MOVE ON AFTER A PAINFUL LOSS
It is very difficult for people to move on after a painful loss has occurred, particularly if it was a person or a business that was very dear to them.
In some cases, people who never recover from this painful feeling relapse into a state where they experience mental health problems like depression, acute PTSD, anxiety and the likes.
Most of the times, the reason why it is difficult for people to move on is because of how dear the person or business was to them.
Imagine having a friend from high school with whom you did everything together, including going to the same college, and you hear the person dropped dead on a certain day. This news could be very painful and if care is not taken, the bereaved might not recover.
People need to know that losses are part of life, and even though they are hard to accept, life must go on, and so should we.
In the case of having a million-dollar investment crumble to dust, it would look like life is over because that is a good source of income. It is okay to mourn over such great loss, but it should not be a continuous act.
Life offers us a variety of choices, and people are often blind to this. When losses happen and we have grieved over them, the next step is to pick up from where you stopped and start again.
In the case of losing an individual, one of the best means to get over the loss, is to live your life! You need to live your life in the consciousness that, you lost one would be happy with you wherever they are.
If they had a pending goal they wished to achieve, you can add it to yours, and see to it that the goal is achieved. Creating a memory of your beloved one with an act of service is one of the best ways to recover from a painful exit.
In addition, it is also important to go for counseling sessions that are specifically for grief and loss. There, you will see other people like you who have come to shed their burden. And this becomes the perfect avenue for you to meet with other people, and have them share your burden too.
