At The Grief Recovery Institute , they have often stated that “stress” is another word for “grief.” We define grieve by saying that it’s the result of the conflicting feelings caused by the end of or change in a familiar pattern of behavior. More simply stated, it is the normal and natural reaction to any change that occurs in life.
If you found yourself on this page there is a high probability that you, or someone you love is suffering from a broken heart. Is it due to a death, divorce, end of a relationship, loss of a job, redundancy, retirement or another major loss? If so you might feel sad, distracted, or confused. Do you have children that have suffered a bereavement and you are at a loss to know how to help them best? You are not alone. The Grief Recovery Method has been helping people feel better following a loss for 40 years.
The grief that comes with any emotional loss can be overwhelming and also very isolating. Often people find that those they normally count on for emotional support are at a total loss when it comes to offering effective and meaningful assistance. They will often give you logical reasons why you should not feel bad, but that rarely helps. Grief is emotional and not logical! You are suffering from a broken heart, not a broken head! The fact that you are seeking help in dealing with that emotional pain is not a sign of weakness, but rather a recognition on your part that you are interested in taking recovery action!
