BeingGirl Experts,

How do you cope with death?

 

Marge

---

Dear Marge,

Coping with death is a time you will experience many kinds of emotions, and it takes time. You will go through a grieving process with stages. Working through each stage is helpful. Denial is the first stage of grief. This is when you find it difficult to accept what has happened. Depression is the second stage and is when you will feel sad. Anger is the next stage. You may find yourself angry at the person you lost for not being there.The final stage of grief is when you realize and accept memories are what you have remaining.

 

A person has to allow enough time to experience all of these thoughts and feelings to themselves, and to acknowledge and accept all the feelings. Express feelings openly and know that crying offers a release. Acknowledge and accept all feelings, both positive and negative. We must learn to accept that death is a normal part of the life cycle.

 

Hope you find this helpful,

Your BeingGirl Experts

this is going to sound sad but dont cry me a river, just think about the good times we had, when the year started, my mom tore her ACL (the thing that keeps ur shin and ur knees together)and just as we're getting ready to do surgery, my aunt dies, she died on march 3rd so just over a year ago. she was the best aunt any of u could hav. She would call me on my bithdays (she wz the only aunt i had that did that) and she sent me birthday cards (she wx the only aunt to do that to) then my friend died over the summer of cancer. we werent too too close but we were close. and finally my grandfather died on sept.1. it wz one of the hardest things to go through. these all happened in the same yr (last yr) and i just hate not being able to call them on their birthday. but they were all close w God and belived that Jesus died for our sins so i know that they r in a way better place without darkness. so im a little happy that they arent hurting anymore bcuz they all died of medical probs.

My grandpa died this morning (Malaysia time), late afternoon (Canadian time). I cried and tried to stop because I had to go to rehearsals for my school play. My friend asked me why my nose was red and when I told her, she kept hugging me. My mom's phone practically didn't stop ringing. *sigh* I still can't accept the fact that I'll never see him again. If there are really so many stories, This is going to be a LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG month.
