It’s difficult to take your emotions out of situations and deal with what is right in your face. That means you have to hold yourself accountable for everything you experienced in that moment.
Over the years I’ve learned to take my emotions out of everything especially when it comes to making decisions, listening to people, and having compassion for other people’s situations. When you feel that things should go a certain way that’s your opinion not a fact. Granted, we all have opinions of what SHOULD be, but is that based on facts, or based on reality? That’s an opinion, YOUR opinion.
Being in reality made me hold myself accountable. Holding myself accountable made me heal from past traumas and experiences. Healing from past traumas and experiences made me LOVE myself even more.
The denial stage of the 7 Stages of Grief is where most people stay stuck. It’s easier to NOT deal with the fact your loved one is gone. But in reality it destroys you mentally. You don’t allow yourself to feel the emotions of the loss.
When you lose someone you love, it’s hard to imagine life without them. Every loss comes with pain and adjustments we need to make. You are not alone, and knowing the 7 stages of grief might help you see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Shock & Denial
You will probably react to learning of the loss with numbed disbelief. You may deny the reality of the loss at some level, in order to avoid the pain. The shock provides emotional protection from being overwhelmed all at once. This may last for weeks.
It’s important to read about grief and understand it. Become fully aware of your feelings in the moments they are happening and Let Them Happen! Being Emotional Present and In Reality creates a balanced Mind, Body & Soul.
The keys to a happy and fulfilling life require you to Live Life, Love Life, and Have the Day You Deserve.
