Bereavement and Loss

There are lots of different types of bereavement and loss and you may not be acknowledging all types of loss which you have experienced.  When you experience sudden loss or lots of different types of bereavements in a short period of time, if you aren’t using the right coping mechanisms, you can spiral into anxiety and depression very quickly.  The emotions of anger, sadness, sorrow, grief, frustration, distrust, anxiety, insecurity, helplessness and hopelessness can be right at the forefront of your thoughts.  It can feel that you are never going to get over the losses you have experienced.  You may feel like you want to die as the pain is so bad, however you can change how you feel and go on to have a happier life.  Become a learner of your life and learn to love your life again by using the Love Game.

Acknowledge how you are feeling and now learn how to apply techniques to remove the pain and to transform how you are feeling.  It is important to take action as soon as you realise that you aren’t feeling happy and its getting worse.  You may be feeling empty, you have everything to live for, but you just can’t be content and have no peace of mind.

Time for you to get your life back and to feel energised again! You are probably already beginning to notice that I work fast to help solve your problem.
