Lost A Loved One Suddenly? Top 4 Tips To Help You Cope
Death is difficult to accept, but sudden death may be even harder to deal with. Sudden death occurs unexpectedly. Untimely. We’re unprepared for it, and we’re dealing not just with death and all the grieving that comes with it but also with the shock of an unexpected loss.
Our sense of security is shattered when someone dies unexpectedly.
We would rather believe that our treasured ones are safe. We expect accidents and illnesses to elude them. So when tragedy strikes and our loved ones die unexpectedly, we are shocked. A single word pervades our entire being: Why?
A sudden death will shake you to the core. You can’t reason with it, but you are sure that life won’t be the same.
Grief symptoms will persist longer than if you had anticipated the death. The emotional and physical shock, which is a normal part of acute grief, seems to be more long-lasting and intense. This will add to your stress as you try to process and understand what happened, demoralizing you even more. While you have the same tasks of grieving as all mourners do, you have to cope with the additional stresses that leave you comparatively more disadvantaged and depleted.
You need to have your life back!
For your well-being, you need to overcome the shock and grief, whether the death occurred suddenly or was expected. For this reason, we have compiled tips to help those left behind after the sudden death of a relative or friend cope. Here is what you should do if you ever find yourself in this situation:
Mourn your loved one at your own pace
Everybody goes through a period of mourning, and everyone’s phases are unique. Your period of mourning could last a few weeks or several months. Don’t rush it, and resist the urge to “get over it already” from others.
Take care of yourself
It doesn’t mean going to the spa immediately after losing a loved one. What we mean is that you should take care of yourself by eating well, resting, and taking a bath. Put on clean clothing. Maintain your exercise routine even if you must take some days off. When we are dealing with any type of grief, these incredibly fundamental things frequently disappear first.
Seek help if the grief is taking longer or affecting your life considerably
Never attempt to go it alone. If you feel you aren’t coping normally, seek support from your friends and family. Consider speaking with a professional about pathologic grief, for instance, if it has been several months or a year and your mourning or grief is interfering with your capacity to take care of yourself, interact socially, or carry out your duties at work. If you have any thoughts of hurting yourself or someone else, get help right away.
Talk to a professional if revenge ideation happens
You might want vengeance depending on how your relative or friend passed away. For instance, you might want to exact revenge on someone who killed your loved one. Or perhaps you would like to exact revenge on the employer if a friend or family member perished in an accident at work. Understand that your internal desire for revenge is normal, even though you don’t want to carry out your retaliation (and if you really do, as in, you have a plan and you’re going to follow it, seek help right away).
