I am really beginning to understand that all of us have been incorrectly taught how to deal with death. Since the advent of modern medicine, we have been taught that doctors will save the lives of our loved ones and ourselves. We see our loved ones go through excruciating pain and treatments in the hopes that they will live. And some people do live for many years. However, that is not always the case. But what we have learned in the modern world, is that death is painful, expensive and horrifying. It is something to be feared.
What we have forgotten in our modern world, is that death is a normal and natural part of life. So in turn, grieving is a normal and natural part of our lives. Through the Grief Recovery Method, we learn that grieving is a natural process and that there are some simple steps that we need to do to get back to living our lives.
Working through issues of grief is simple, but not always easy. We learn how to not regret our past actions, we learn how to forgive yourselves for unspoken words we so wanted to express to our loved ones. We learn how to say goodbye to the painful, and sometimes traumatic and hurtful memories.
Through learning this process and following the guidelines, our broken hearts start to heal. We will remember the good times and the bad times. The joy in our lives returns. Admittedly, our lives have obviously changed forever because someone we loved has died, however, we’ll find ourselves more confident and assured as time goes by.
These are a few of the benefits that people get when working through the Grief Recovery Method. I know it has changed my life forever, for the better.
