The Effects of Unresolved Grief

  • Overwhelming Feelings. The feelings you experience immediately following a loss can be overwhelming.
  • Sadness and Depression. In the long term, unresolved grief can lead to chronic feelings of sadness which do not go away over time.
  • Relationship Issues. Unresolved grief can keep you from attending to current relationships and can even lead to isolation.
  • Mental Confusion. Unresolved grief can interfere with your ability to think clearly.
  • Job or School Problems. Unresolved grief can interfere with your ability to perform on the job or at school.
  • Sleeplessness. Unresolved grief can lead to problems sleeping.
  • Addictions. In some cases unresolved grief can lead to the abuse of alcohol, drugs, or activities.

A Counselor can Help

Grieving is a natural human reaction to a loss. But we are rarely taught how to grieve. Many people in our lives are uncomfortable with expressions of grief. So often people who suffer a loss learn to hide their feelings. They do not process through their grief and so are stuck in the grieving process, unable to move on. There are five stages of grief—

  • Denial
  • Anger
  • Bargaining
  • Depression
  • Acceptance

Not everyone goes through every one of these stages and not everyone goes through the stages in this order. Stages may be repeated. The goal is to get through to acceptance—not to forget but to accept so that the loss is no longer overwhelming.

To move through these stages and properly grieve a loss, it is helpful to have a counselor to talk to who will not feel uncomfortable with your grief but who will help you express your grief in whatever way is best for you. In some circumstance, you may also benefit from medication.

Benefits of Grief Counseling

  • Your grief will not seem so overwhelming.
