Myths About Grief


Myths and Facts About Grief


MYTH: The pain will go away faster if you ignore it.
Fact: Trying to ignore your pain or keep it from surfacing will only make it worse in the long run. For real healing it is necessary to face your grief and actively deal with it.
MYTH: It’s important to be “be strong” in the face of loss.
Fact: Feeling sad, frightened, or lonely is a normal reaction to loss. Crying doesn’t mean you are weak. You don’t need to “protect” your family or friends by putting on a brave front. Showing your true feelings can help them and you.
MYTH: If you don’t cry, it means you aren’t sorry about the loss.
Fact: Crying is a normal response to sadness, but it’s not the only one. Those who don’t cry may feel the pain just as deeply as others. They may simply have other ways of showing it.
MYTH: Grief should last about a year.
Fact: There is no right or wrong time frame for grieving. How long it takes can differ from person to person.

Nice article. The sentence that I like the most is "MYTH: If you don’t cry, it means you aren’t sorry about the loss." -> definitely wrong. Some people, they don't want to express their emotion that they keep it in their heart, and cry in silent. They have to be strong to help these other. happy wheels az | game online | game for girl | cookinggames | tom And jerry game | starcraft 3 | sniper games | cool maths games | kid game

I'm puzzled with lots of exercises. I was afraid I could not do the right time despite my hard work. I need a support person.
