I recently came across an article on the stages of grieving by the INLP Center (inlpcenter.org). The loss of a loved one can be one of the greatest challenges to overcome in life. Honouring the grieving process is an integral part of the healing process.
Stages of Grieving: Take the Steps to a Resourceful Life
Most people think, when faced with an incredible loss, they just have to hunker down and get through the pain and suffering. For the most part it’s true. However, the grieving process can be a great opportunity for growth. You can learn to develop resourceful states as you move through the inevitable stages of grieving. By developing resourceful states you will be able to manage your pain and suffering and not fall into a pit of despair.
Human beings have been experiencing grief for as long as we have been gifted life. We have our loved ones in our lives and think they will be there forever. Then, one day, they are gone in a moment. Finally, we begin our own stages of grief.
