Grief

Someone only ants to be busy; other finds it difficult to do something. One talks, other keeps their feelings and thoughts deep inside. The main important thing is to find resources to help someone to deal with his/her grief. The most basic definition of this phenomenon is given by Russell Friedman in her article “The Best Grief Definition You Will Find” (2013), “Grief is the normal and natural emotional reaction to loss or change of any kind. Of itself, grief is neither a pathological condition nor a personality disorder’ (Para. 2). That is why, it is very important to find resources that help to deal with grief. According to the

Lillian Grief Resources’ article “Grieving the death of a loved one” (2005), “In the midst of your grieving, be patient with yourself and others and do something kind for yourself each day. Be sure to ask for help when you need it” (Para. 6). The first resource helps if the person belongs to a religious organization. He/she can talk to salesperson or join grief groups in the church. The grief groups can be not only in churches, but also in local mental health department or local hospitals. The second resource is grief counseling. Person can talk to the counselors in private practice, online, or in local phone rectory.

Dry. Gary in his article “Resources to help with grief. Let’s share” (201 1) states “Talking is an essential element of the grieving process! ” (Para. 5). Consequently, talk to family or friends. Grievers need to divert their attention away from the grief. It will be useful to read poetry or books, exercise, listen to music, engage in social activities, eat healthy and good food, and take time to relax. In conclusion, necessary to say that grief has no end, but it changes in character and strength. Nevertheless, it is essential to understand the nature of the grief response and conquer it.
