Some days are easier to cope with than others. This is because grief is unpredictable. Although you already went through the initial shock, and the loss already happened, it can feel like just yesterday. Thus, it can feel impossible to go through this journey and process it alone. Especially, without support and tools to cope. Grief counseling gives you these tools. While everyone works through grief differently, therapeutic approaches have been shown to dramatically improve a person’s ability to feel better. You may have a million thoughts going through your mind. Accepting and coping are especially hard. It can feel overwhelming. Like the world should stop. It’s that extreme.
Suffering at any age is not easy. At Sunflower Counseling our therapists have worked extensively through all-consuming grief – this is what they do. They help people see positive new life outcomes and to find meaning in the darkness. These are people who have recently experienced grief or loss or those who have been waiting for years to reach out – and it is a very big deal to have the courage to ask the big questions. “Why did this happen?” and “Okay. So now what do I do with the rest of my life?” “Do I wither up now that everything has changed? How will I continue to live on?” We want you to know there are choices.
It helps to be guided by a caring professional counselor who is experienced in working through these almost impossible situations. But it can be done, and our counselors do it every day with people from all walks of life.
