Nurturing Grief - Balancing, Processing and Acceptance.

Desiring to stop feeling sad while also wanting to hold onto the intensity of sadness is a common and conflicting experience in grief.

It can be difficult to let go of intense emotions, especially when they are tied to a significant loss. However, holding onto intense grief can prevent the healing process and prolong suffering. It is important to find a healthy balance between acknowledging and processing grief, while also moving towards acceptance and finding closure. This can be achieved through seeking support from loved ones, engaging in self-care activities, and seeking professional help from a mental health professional.

Counselling provides a safe and supportive space for individuals to process their feelings, thoughts, and experiences related to grief. A therapist can help individuals understand and work through their emotions, develop healthy coping skills, and find meaning in their loss.

Grief is often a deeply felt experience that can be difficult to express in words. It can involve a complex mix of emotions, physical sensations, and thoughts that can be overwhelming and hard to articulate. Grief can also be a private and personal experience, and individuals may feel like they don't have the words to describe what they are feeling. This can lead to feelings of isolation and frustration. It is important to remember that it is normal to struggle with expressing grief.

When there are no more words perhaps massage can help.

Nurturing grief through massage aims to provide comfort and support for individuals who are grieving. The idea is that massage can help release physical and emotional tension, promoting relaxation and a sense of calm

Massage can provide physical and emotional comfort and relaxation, and may help alleviate some of the symptoms associated with grief. Touch, in particular, has been shown to have a calming effect and can help release physical tension. Massage can also provide a sense of connection and support, which can be especially important for individuals who are grieving.

Grief is a complex and ongoing process, and seeking support from a mental health professional can provide a more comprehensive approach to healing and finding closure.
