A summary for those ‘Grieving’
There are 5 specific break-up personality types. Each have their strengths and weaknesses. Learning more about yours will help you move forward…
You’ve arrived in this state due to a significant emotional trauma. Your body has chosen to grieve to help you transition through the pain caused by a significant loss. It has physical, cognitive, behavioural, social, and philosophical dimensions.
Grieving can be a painful experience, however it is also an important part of the recovery process.
Some cultures and societies promote the stiff-upper-lip approach and this approach can lead some people to feel ‘guilty’ for expressing their grief (even in private), but there is nothing to feel guilty about.
Grieving is your body physically exfoliating the emotions inside of you – this is no bad thing.
Other cultures like some African and Middle-Eastern societies are much more fully expressed. You may have seen news reporter videos after a disaster of men and women wailing in uncontrollable grief. It can be hard to view, and the extreme pain they are feeling is obvious for all to see.
However this is also incredible cathartic.
It is said that no emotion can be fully expressed for more than about 30 minutes – and it’s true. It’s absolutely exhausting for a start, and at the end of it you will have literally cried all the emotions and grief out of you.
Many people report feeling clean and empty (in a good way) afterwards.
Left unchecked, your grieving will hold you back in every area of your life, including any future relationships as well as your career.
If however your feeling of grief continues for days, weeks, or even longer then you need to address this. It is highly likely that whilst you are feeling and experiencing ‘grief’ you haven’t yet expressed the full deepness of it. Thus it remains with you, and will prevent recovery.
There are specific exercises that can be performed to achieve this such as the infamous Naked Divorce Baseball exercise, and are included within the Naked Divorce 21 Day and Haven programs.
These exercises should be completed with professional direction, and so we don’t go into greater detail in this short summary.
