Hi Fred 2018
Grief is a pain that can’t be taken away no matter what may say . It can be overcome and everyone grieves differently.
Grief has many emotional and physical reactions. The emotional reactions of grief are sadness, anger, denial, depression, fear, loneliness and the physical reactions of grief are head aches, body pain, sweating, shaking, breathless, weight gain or loss and panic attacks. You may also feel withdrawal, not wanting to do the tasks you did before and spiritually it may bring you closer to god or you distant these are reactions of grief.
Accepting the reality of the grief and working through it and have an enduring connection with the deceased by memories, biographies could help. Try to develop new skills and new relationships. get yourself involved in activities you like or maybe a support group where you meet friends and have an interaction.
Talking to someone whom you feel cares and you are comfortable to share your grief may help someone who can listen patiently by being non judgemental .
i do hope this helps you. You will surely get over your depression . Keep yourself occupied with activities you enjoy and please don’t give into your feelings. Feelings play a great part on our minds. Always tell yourself everyday “I am going to stop worrying and start living” no matter what you feel and in time you will fight your depressive thoughts and become stronger . It’s only your state of mind and you alone can fight the feeling and you will if you have the will power to do it.
stay strong stay blessed
