Loss & Grief

The death of a loved one or the end of a relationship can lead to intense grief, loneliness and uncertainty.

People often feel lost and question how they will survive.

They sometimes isolate themselves because they do not want to ‘burden’ others with their intense feelings. Or because they have been given unhelpful messages such as, “you need to get over this”. Or because they don’t feel comfortable socializing with friends who are couples anymore.

Some people try to avoid the intense pain of grief by self medicating with food, alcohol, drugs or compulsive spending. Others keep themselves excessively busy to try to avoid their pain.
