Coping With Loss

Coping With Loss

The Kubler-Ros model, or the five stages of grief, is a series of emotional stages experienced by survivors of a loved one’s death:

  • denial – “This can’t be happening to me.”
  • anger – “Why is this happening?  Who is to blame?”
  • bargaining – “Make this not happen, and in return I will…….”
  • depression – “I’m too sad to do anything.”
  • acceptance – “I’m at peace with what happened.”

There’s millions of on-line products teaching or informing people about a variety of stuff about life, but how to teach about loss??

4 years ago I began my journey of grief over the loss of a 34 year-old relationship, when my marriage broke up and my 3 adult children left home.

2 years ago I grieved over the loss of our family home when I moved to a new home on my own.

2 weeks ago, my darling Dad died at the grand old age of 92.

And everyone keeps asking me how I coped, so I’ve decided to share some insights with you in this video.

Any loss can cause grief, including:

  • Divorce or relationship breakup
  • Loss of health
  • Losing a job
  • Loss of financial stability
  • A miscarriage
  • Retirement
  • Death of a much loved pet
  • Loss of a cherished dream
  • A loved one’s serious illness
  • Loss of a friendship
  • Loss of safety after a trauma
  • Selling the family home

We often think of grief as a strictly emotional process, but grief often involves physical symptoms –

  • fatigue
  • nausea
  • lowered immunity
  • weight loss
  • weight gain
  • aches and pains
  • insomnia
