Nature and Purpose of Grief

"Grief is reaching out for someone who's always been there, only to find when you need them the most, one last time, they're gone"

The death of a loved one is life's most painful event. People's reactions to death remain one of society's least understood and most off-limits topics for discussion. Oftentimes, grievers are left totally alone in dealing with their pain, loneliness, and isolation.

Grief is a natural emotion that follows death, and to one degree or another, it hurts. It is like an open wound which must heal.

At times, it seems as if this healing will never happen. But, sometimes the healing process can take much less time than we have been led to believe. Grieving is purely an individual experience.

The ultimate goal of grief and mourning is to take you beyond your initial reactions to the loss. The therapeutic purpose of grief and mourning is to get you to the place where you can live with the loss healthily, after having made the necessary changes to do so. What must you do to get to this point? You must:

  • Change your relationship with your loved one—recognizing he now is dead and developing new ways of relating to him.
  • Develop a new sense of yourself to reflect the many changes that occurred when you lost your loved one.
  • Take on healthy new ways of being in the world without your loved one.
  • Find new people, objects or pursuits in which to put the emotional investment that you once placed in your relationship with the deceased.

The bottom line of this active work of grief and mourning, therefore, is to help you recognize that your loved one is gone. Then you must make the necessary internal, psychological changes, as well as the necessary external, social changes, to accommodate this reality. And it all takes time.

If you would like additional grief support, please call us at (833) 289-7104 or (608) 217-9166. We are here to help you through all the moments after loss.
