Coping with grief

- +

'When a loved one dies, the grieving process takes time," said Prof Bart Gruzalski of Limerick Insight Meditation Centre in Ireland. "The healing process happens gradually and cannot be forced or hurried. It's important to be patient. It's more important to remember that we cannot manage another person's grief." 

Some people think that pain or grief will go away faster if they don't pay attention to it. Many hide their feelings and try to be strong when facing a loss.

"In fact, trying to keep the pain from surfacing will only make it worse in the long run. For real healing, it's necessary to face your grief and deal with it actively." he said.
