Grief is defined as deep and poignant distress caused by loss. While it is commonly associated with the loss of a loved one, it can also be caused by the following:
These are just some examples of the causes of grief in a person’s life. Dealing with grief can be a very difficult journey, but you don’t have to go through it alone!
Different people turn to different things when they experience grief. Some turn to substance abuse (i.e. drugs or alcohol), emotional eating (overeating or under-eating), compulsive spending, hoarding, isolation, over-working, sexual activity or aggression.
While these things can give the false impression of comfort in your time of grief, they are, in fact, more harmful to you in your state. Not only can it make things worse for you, but also for the people around you.
So, what can we do when we experience grief? As children of God, the best thing for us to do is to turn to Him.
In times of grief, God sends ways to help us handle it! Next month, a special event is coming to help people experiencing grief to seek comfort from the Lord and restore peace in their lives.
