Loss is one of the worst emotions in the human experience. It’s not necessarily sadness. It’s not necessarily pain. It’s not necessarily heartbreak or fear. It is dozens of different emotions all rolled up into one, and it is powerful.
Grief and bereavement are some of the worst emotions in the human experience, but unfortunately they are also inevitable. Everyone will experience loss at some point in their lives, and whether you know it is coming or not, it will always feel like a shock.
Calgary Grief Counselling and Bereavement Counselling
After you’ve lost a loved one, friend, or something important to you, the feeling of emptiness that follows can be profoundly difficult. There is an adjustment period when you may feel any number of emotions, including:
These emotions may not even make sense for the scenario. There are times you may even feel happy, as if your life is renewed without the individual, only to feel guilt and deep sadness moments later that hit you like an emotional truck. There is no right way or wrong way to feel when you’re grieving. There is only a difficult number of overwhelming emotions.
When these emotions take hold of you for too long and you don’t feel like you are able to recover, you may be in need of grief counselling. At Innovative Counselling Solutions, our goal is to be here and provide you with someone to talk to and guide you towards a positive recovery and the change you need to move forward.
Working Through Grief and Pain
You do not have to struggle alone. The person you lost wouldn’t want your life to be put on hold for them. They want your life to be great – they want your life to be even better than when they were there – and so it’s important that you work through your pain and find a way to heal.
No one can replace the person you’ve lost, but you can still move forward and heal. With our Calgary bereavement counselling services at Innovative Counselling Solutions, we have a trained counsellor available for you to talk to for as long as it takes for you to recover from your loss. If you’re in need of help, contact us today to find out more.
