Tips for Dealing with Loss/Death

Tips for Dealing with Loss/Death

If you are reading this because you are trying to cope with a loved one's death, let us tell you that we are so very sorry for your loss. Here are some tips for learning how to survive a loss.
Now is the time to let others know that you need help.

Chances are, many people are simply unsure of how to help you. Tell them what you need.

  • Don't be too proud to ask for help.
  • Don't withdraw from the world. Keep in touch with other people - friends, family, spiritual leaders. Use them for support, comfort, and healing.
  • Surround yourself with people who will listen when you need to talk and those who simply offer a shoulder if you'd rather be silent.
  • Grief is as unique as the person who experiences it - your grief will be different than anyone else's.
  • Don't compare your grieving process to someone else's. We all grieve differently.
  • It's okay to grieve - grieving the loss of someone means that you cared about or even loved this person.
  • It's also okay to heal. Don't let your healing process be overshadowed by guilt for "not grieving enough."
  • You may experience physical complaints (insomnia, headaches, exhaustion) that are brought about by your emotions. Talk to your general doctor about these symptoms and see what can be alleviated.
  • Cry if you want to cry. Don't be afraid to let it out. And if you don't or can't cry? That's okay too. Everyone grieves differently.
  • You will struggle with the "why" of a death until you've gotten your answer, an answer that makes sense to you, or you no longer need to know why.
  • You might feel crazy as you run the gamut of feelings - anger, guilt, confusion, forgetfulness, those are all very common reactions. You're not going nuts - you're grieving a very difficult loss.
  • It's okay to feel overwhelmed by your feelings.
  • Find at least one person who gives you the permission to grieve and lean on them.
  • Remember that you can postpone grief, but you can't outrun it. If you're living with unresolved grief, it becomes harder and harder to cope with other every day stresses. Let your grief out.
  • Although it may be tempting, don't throw yourself into work or other projects as a means to avoid your grief. You must deal with your grief.
  • Prepare yourself for anniversary reactions - holidays, birthdays, anniversaries and other significant dates will be very painful reminders for you and can amplify your sense of loss.
  • On those special days, don't force yourself to do or be anything. Allow yourself to do whatever it is you feel like doing.
  • There will be setbacks - some days, months, and years will be better and worse than others. That's okay. Grief and grieving doesn't follow a straight line.
  • Find a support group in the area. There can be a lot of strength in knowing that others have experienced a loss as well.
  • Commemorate your loved one in a tangible way. Plant a tree. Dedicate a bench. Plant a garden. Create a scrapbook of memories. Put together a shadow box for the wall. These are things that can help you to feel connected to your loved one. 
  • Write it out. Take some time to write about the suicide.
  • Keep a private journal and make writing in it a priority. Writing is one of the most effective forms of therapy.
  • Don't abuse alcohol or prescription drugs as a means to cope. In the end, it will only hurt you.
  • Don't concentrate all your energy on comforting others reeling from the death - it may be your way of avoiding the grief.
  • Guilt. Is not helpful. Talk about your feelings of guilt with someone you love and trust.
  • The death is not your fault. You might feel that you could've done something more to prevent it, but that's not the case. You cannot assume responsibility for the actions of another. PERIOD.
  • Try setting up a picture of your lost loved one and talk to it. It may help to articulate all of the things you'd wished you could say to the person.
  • Depression is very common. If you find it to be prolonged or particularly hard to deal with, seek professional help. 
  • Know when you can no longer manage on your own - and seek professional help. Trained grief experts are available to help you learn to cope with the grief.
  • Let the anger out. There can be anger surrounding a death and it has to go somewhere. Chop wood. Scream. Listen to music. Run. Dance.
  • Take your grief one day, one second, one moment at a time.
