Living With Grief: How to Survive a Significant Loss

Eleven seminarsOne of the hardest things we'll ever experience is the loss of someone -- or something -- dear to us. Grieving is a normal and natural response to this loss. While death is one of the most common losses, grief also comes with other big and small life changes, such as a serious illness, the end of a relationship, the loss of a job, relocating to an unfamiliar city, or other lifestyle changes.

Even if you aren't currently grieving, it can be beneficial to think about the grief process. At its core, grief is a part of the experience of being alive...and human. And while grief isn't pleasant, it can give us insight, compassion and strength that we wouldn't otherwise have found.

Here are some ways to access those greater qualities, survive a significant loss or help someone experiencing grief.

1. Expect a process.

In stark contrast to how frequently TV characters talk about "getting closure," in reality, grief is an ongoing experience. The goal of grieving isn't to "get to the bottom of it" or to stop feeling a certain way. Instead, it's a process of learning to live with your emotions every day and every moment. Even years later, reminders like a special day or the smell of a favorite meal may trigger a fresh wave of memories and feelings linked to the loss.

10 Ways to Cope with Change

All change carries with it the risk of the unknown and the unexpected. Some find this exciting and welcome the challenge. Others go down the path of change reluctantly, dragging their heels all the way. But, as many a poet or songwriter has written, the only thing that's permanent is change. Here are 10 ways to help you deal with it.

  1. Understand your response to change. Do you tend to leap before you look or to imagine the worst?

  2. Take responsibility for your reaction to change. You may not be able to control the events, but you can control your reaction to them.

  3. Keep other changes to a minimum. Coming to terms with major changes is physically and emotionally taxing. Conserve your energy.

  4. Look to others. Those who have undergone similar changes can serve as models for how you might better cope.
