We thrived as a species by forming attachments. The bond between baby and parent, for example, ensured that the baby’s chances of survival were strong amidst a dangerous environment. In the modern world, attachment has evolved into love for our spouses, family and friends with whom we share values and experiences.
Grief and bereavement are difficult to navigate alone, as it’s an all-consuming emotional roller coaster that can dominate our lives. Unfortunately for men, many of us feel that we need to suffer it in isolation. We’re more likely to cry in the car by ourselves than in front of others. We’re tempted to pretend nothing’s wrong despite the recent death of a loved one, divorce, job loss, or terminal diagnosis. We might even grieve a younger, healthier version of ourselves.
Due to our strong human tendency to love others, every one of us will grieve at some point in our life. It’s the cost we pay for being human. When life as you know it has changed forever, grief counselling can help you channel and express grief in a productive way.
The grief and bereavement process will look different for everyone because nobody experiences grief in the same way. It’s an emotional upheaval that can manifest itself in many forms at different times throughout the various stages of grief. It is so strong that it can impact your physical and mental health if it’s ignored.
