Losing a loved one changes your life forever, but that doesn’t mean you have to grieve forever.
DALLAS, TX, November 22, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — No one ever expects to lose a loved one, and when it happens, the grieving process can be overwhelming. The first step on this difficult journey is to understand what you are feeling. In her book “Grieving: The Journey to Healing,” author Josette R Crumble provides an in-depth look at the healing process and offers strategies for those who are grieving.
In this article, we will explore some of the key concepts from Crumble’s book and discuss how they can help you start healing from your loss.
Dealing With 12 Deaths in 12 Months Crumble knows a thing or two about loss. In the span of 12 months, she lost her oldest sister, only daughter, oldest brother, and nine other loved ones. This experience prompted her to share her story with the world in the hopes of helping others who are grieving.
“Losing them isn’t the hardest part, learning to live without them is.”
The death of a loved one is always a shock, no matter how expected. It can feel as if the ground has been pulled out from under you and there is no way to cope with the pain. In her book, Crumble offers an honest look at the grieving process and how it can be different for everyone.
Crumble says that it’s important to allow yourself to “sit” in the emotion. Some people may cry often, while others may become withdrawn and silent. The focus is to heal and not remain in a state of grief.
One of the main things Crumble stresses is the importance of establishing boundaries. Grieving can be all-consuming, and it is important to set aside time for yourself to remember your loved ones. This may mean taking a break from work or social obligations. It is also important to allow yourself to feel your emotions and not bottle them up.
“It is okay to not be okay.”
Crumble shares the importance of seeking professional help if you feel like you are struggling to cope with your loss. Grief can be a very isolating experience and talking to a therapist or counselor can help you feel less alone.
The Many Faces of Grief
Crumble discusses the different faces of grief and how they can manifest in different ways when not dealt with properly. Your grief is as unique as your fingerprint. From tiredness to busyness and from crying spells to numbness, there are many emotions that you may experience and every single one of them is valid. It is important to allow yourself to feel whatever you are feeling without judgment and process your emotions to get to the place of healing.
Losing a loved one changes your life forever, but that doesn’t mean you have to grieve forever. With prayer, a support team, and the strategies in this book, you can HEAL! Remember, this is a journey to healing and all journeys have a beginning and an end!
If you are grieving the loss of a loved one, Crumble’s book “Grieving: The Journey to Healing” can offer advice and support. This book is an honest look at the grieving process and how to start healing from your loss.
