Dealing with grief at the holidays takes time and healing.
One of the most difficult things that we will learn to do in our lives is to grieve the death of our parents, children, close relatives, lovers, spouses and friends whom we love. When loss happens arrives around Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas or Yule, what is already unbearable becomes even more difficult. During the holiday season, we are constantly being bombarded by loud music, laughter and cheer that we really do not want to hear. We want to be alone somewhere, quietly managing our pain. What else do we have to look forward to?
Nevertheless, even in our deepest, darkest sorrow, there is one thing that we must do despite our suffering. We must continue to live. How we live after a great loss is critical to our health and well-being.
Here are my three fundamentals for living during a sorrowful time:
Step 1. Maintain your physical health.
Step 2. Maintain your emotional health.
Step 3. Maintain your spiritual health.
These three steps are a tremendous help with the grieving process. To help yourself heal from the death of a loved one at the holidays or anytime it happens, you must first choose to live and then take these fundamental steps.
Peace and Blessings,
