Dealing with a loss

Dealing with a loss may become complicated. This may happen in at least two ways: how you cope with your emotions and how you cope with your thoughts. Today’s blog will focus on coping with emotions. Losing someone or a pet or property can be sad and painful. If you try to avoid feeling these painful emotions they are likely going to haunt you. So it would be helpful to practice the acceptance of these emotions and the sensations that come with them. Feel and observe them. It can be really helpful, if you believe this, to remind yourself they are in a better place and feel that strong positive emotion that comes with it. But don’t chase that feeling at the expense of avoiding the negative stuff.
