Different kinds of losses

Death is not the only experience we have that causes grief.


We will have feelings of grief when we experience all kinds of losses.


We grieve when we go through a divorce, or a break up with a friend or any loved one. We mourn when significant changes happen in our lives; moving, leaving a job, disagreements with people, losing ideas we grew up with and find they are not true, the loss of a pet, losing a long wanted dream we believed in, and so many more various levels of loss.



It is a good idea to ask for help when you are experiencing any kind of grief or deep sadness. When you find support and share it with someone you trust, the sting of the loss can lessen.


Here are 5 ways to work toward recovering after these life-changing events:

  1. Allow yourself time to grieve.

  2. Accept the current reality.

  3. Practice mindfulness.

  4. Reach out for help.

  5. Try to create a new daily routine for yourself


Self-care includes sharing your feelings with others. If you need a listening ear as you navigate the grieving process, reach out for help.
