How Can You Help A Friend As They Go Through The Stages Of Grief?
We've all heard of the five stages of grieving, but it's difficult to grasp how each one affects us uniquely after we've lost someone we care about. If a close friend is struggling with a death, you'll want to know precisely what to consider as they go through the mourning process.
Helping A Friend Through The 5 Stages Of Grief
Here are some suggestions from the professionals at George Darte Funeral Home for assisting a friend through these stages:
Stage 1: Denial
Refusing to accept anything that occurred is pretty standard, and it's a psychological technique that lets us overcome the loss. Do not attempt to influence them; be present and allow them to digest everything calmly.
Stage 2: Anger
Once we've processed what's happened, we get enraged. Regrettably, anger can be beneficial if it is primarily shared discreetly, so assist someone bursting in anger by guiding them to another space.
Stage 3: Bargaining
Simply hearing someone go through these inquiries might assist them in seeing that they are unreasonable.
Stage 4: Depression
Assist them in whatever manner they require, including simply listening to them speak, preventing them from becoming too lonely, or just providing them with some space.
Stage 5: Acceptance
Encouraging them to meet new people and experience new things is an excellent method to assist someone in completing that last step.
Assisting someone through the five stages of grieving entails being there for them, determining how best to help them, and walking alongside them during their grief journey.
