Are you Experiencing Grief?

Grief can shake the foundations of your life and even your faith, leaving you confused and questioning God’s plan. If you’re struggling with loss and finding it hard to reconcile your pain with your beliefs, you are not alone. Even the strongest Christian can grapple with doubt during times of profound sorrow.

Common Symptoms of Grief

“I sat with my anger long enough until she told me her real name was grief.” ― C.S. Lewis

Grief will be experienced differently by every individual who suffers a loss.  As a result,  the symptoms that one person may be exhibiting may differ greatly from the next. However, there are some common indicators that someone may be hurting more than they let on, and need a helping hand:

Emotional Symptoms:

● Intense sadness
● Anger or irritability
● Anxiety or fear
● Guilt or regret
● Numbness or detachment

Physical Symptoms:
● Fatigue or exhaustion
● Changes in appetite
● Sleep disturbances (insomnia or oversleeping)
● Headaches or other aches and pains

Spiritual Symptoms:
● Questioning faith or beliefs
● Seeking comfort in spiritual practices

What is Prolonged Grief?

For some people feelings of loss are debilitating and don’t improve as time passes, this is known as complicated grief. Complicated grief occurs in about 7% of bereaved people. People with this condition are caught up in

  • Rumination about the circumstances of the death,
  • Worry about its consequences
  • Or excessive avoidance of reminders of the loss.

 Seeking grief therapy can provide invaluable support, coping strategies, and a safe space to process your emotions. Whether you’re struggling with a recent loss or long-term grief, professional help can guide you toward healing and finding a new sense of normalcy.
