Do you feel like you're living in a fog? Do you feel less productive or more on edge than before? Do you sometimes collapse into anxiety because you've lost a source of income or are worried about your health? If this sounds familiar, I want you to know:
What you're experiencing amid this pandemic - the fog, the loss of productivity, the existential anxiety, the sadness - is a normal human reaction. And it has a name: Grief.
Grief doesn't just occur in the aftermath of physical death. Grief is experienced whenever something significant changes or ends in our life. And right now? Everything has changed.
Unlike what we're taught, grief doesn't just mean crying and sadness. It can also manifest through:
- Endless social media scrolling
- Online shopping you can't afford
- TV or gaming binges
- Heavy drinking or drug use
- Eating or sleeping more than usual
- Confronting a loss of meaning or purpose
- Anxiety or depression
- Fighting more with a loved one
- Feeling worthless or like a failure
- Inability to make daily decisions
While these behaviors and emotions are common coping methods, they don't help you overcome your grief. Left unchecked, what you're experiencing right now will not go away when external life returns to normal. Much like the trauma caused by the death of a loved one, if not addressed, the trauma of this pandemic will linger into the future. It will wreak havoc on many aspects of your life:
- Health (depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain)
- Strained or failed relationships
- Life choices
Fortunately, you can learn to grieve through this pandemic - not only feeling better now but also ensuring that this trauma does not affect your future. Using the evidence-based, proven Grief Recovery Method, I work one-on-one with clients to process their emotions healthily. Working with me, your losses (no matter how big or small) will be honored, and you will begin to heal from this challenging time in your life. Ultimately, you will uncover the inner strength to rise to the challenges this pandemic presents us with and emerge more resilient and at-peace.
