Grief and Loss

Grief and Loss

Being in a loving relationship with another human being sometimes means coming face-to-face with issues of grief and loss. Death, terminal illness, a broken friendship, or loss of a job or home can all lead to depression, anxiety, and hopelessness. A Pathways Christian counselor will compassionately help you restore hope by taking control of what you can change and surrendering the things you cannot change to God.

One or more of these signs may be present

Recently suffered a catastrophic loss

Inability to concentrate or function

Reaction that lasts more than an expected amount of time

Intensity of reaction to that seems excessive

Fear of mortality

High disruption of work, school, or relationships

Uncontrollable crying

Questions about God

Intense emotions including, anger, irritability, fear, and more

How do I know if I am suffering from grief and loss?

  1. Do you lack appetite, and food seems bland?
  2. Have you lost a lot of weight?
  3. Are you always sad?
  4. Have you thought about ending it all?
  5. Do you always seem tired or find it difficult to get out of bed?
  6. Does it seem like you will never feel better?

If you answered yes to two or more questions, this might indicate a problem with grief and loss. Pathways wants to help you.

What should I do?

It is usual for people to have different adjustment periods. Different people grieve losses in varying ways. And you may take longer to adjust than you would have thought, yet still be working through a natural process. If the intensity or duration are high, we can help.
