Grief is a continual journey. Experts explain that
there are seven stages of grief which are:
- Shock & Denial
- Pain & Guilt
- Anger & Bargaining
- Depression, Reflection or Loneliness
- The Upward Turn
- Reconstruction and Working Through
- Acceptance and Hope
Just because the stages are listed in the above
order does not mean that is the order that each grieving person
experiences. One person may stay in one stage longer than another
stage, but we all go through these stages in some fashion or
another. One person may seem to take a couple of months to work
through their grief and another person may take a year ~ or longer.
There are no concrete answers in dealing with grief. As you work
through your grief or you help someone else work through their
grief, be kind, patient, and compassionate.
If you feel you need someone else to talk to, talk
with your clergy or you can contact us. There are grief classes
offered throughout the year at various locations; and we will
be happy to share that information with you.
