Positive Ways to Cope with Grief

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths.” ~Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Grief is the emotional distress we experience followed by a significant loss. It is all part of the human experience – similar to many other emotions, it exists across beliefs systems, cultures, races, and languages. However, it may differ in how it is expressed, in terms of intensity, duration, your own life experiences, etc.

Most often, grief is associated with the death of a loved one. This type of grief doesn’t only lead to a state of deep mourning for the deceased soul, but also the significant life changes, because of the loss. So in other words its also a loss of a life that was planned.

“Promises are the uniquely human way of ordering the future, making it predictable and reliable to the extent that this is humanly possible.” ~ Hannah Arendt

2021 was really something! I know it was one of those years when everything ebbed and flowed. More ebb less flow. The highs were too short lived and the lows were long and drawn. Not too different from the 2020 pandemic energy that went by the year before, but atleast this year it looked like we were sort of coming back to some sembelence of normalcy. Right now though a new phase of the pandemic is coming forth. Another learning curve for us all. That’s the beauty of all these new phases, if we are open to them, we come out wiser.

I have also been thinking of the year gone in terms of achievements, high points, low points, successes, failures, learning points etc. Introspection and a constant need to be a better more evolved human(e) being makes me think of the year that’s gone by in a learning light.
