Understand how grief can affect you after a loved one dies

The shock of learning that loved one died suddenly and unexpectedly can lead to you feeling almost numb at first. As reality sets in, you will likely start to feel grief. This occurs when your emotional state is impacted by the dramatic loss. You might be surprised at some of the things you will go through as you cope with this.

You should remember that you have to address the pain. It is easy to think that it will go away if you just ignore it, but this isn't the case. Grief that is left alone will fester and get worse until it consumes you. When this happens, it will be much more difficult to deal with the situation.

Well-meaning people might try to tell you how to cope with your loss. Just remember that everyone handles this process differently and at different rates. What worked for one individual might not work in the same way for you. Some people might cry while others don't. This is perfectly normal, so find your own ways to deal with what happened.

More than likely, you will deal with more than one emotion during the period after your loss. You might go from sadness to anger to denial. Make sure that you are dealing with these in a healthy manner. For example, don't deal with anger by attacking the person who caused the incident that led to the death. Instead, turn to the civil court system and file a wrongful death claim if you are the person who can do this.
