Dealing with Grief, Loss & Change
Although death (like taxes, and change) is one of the inevitable parts of life, how and when it impacts the individual or family can be quite different, depending on circumstances.
Death can come with or without warning, e.g.;
It is not always a death that can "knock the wind out of your sails" so to speak.
It can be other changes that are not expected.
Whether it is;
As a result you may not be "your usual self", you might go into "hibernation" (and not because of COVID-19,) or you may "wallow" in your own self-pity and have difficulty accepting the changes that come about as a result of these circumstances.
Admittedly, sometimes the support and assistance of family and friends may for a period of time, be what you need. However, after a while, it may be that you need to speak with someone who is "a few steps removed".
If or when you feel the need to speak with a professional, i.e .someone "a few steps removed", it may be that it is time to phone my booking service on 1300 50 67 68, or book via HealthEngine.com.au (which is available 24/7).
