Losing a Parent

Losing a Parent

As with other forms of loss, the grief that accompanies losing a parent - or even both parents - can be quite traumatic and will generally proceed through several distinct stages of grief. From depression to guilt to problems sleeping, there are a wide range of physical and psychological symptoms that may appear. Dealing with the grief that comes with losing a parent does not have to be difficult. On GoMentor, you can find therapists who offer online therapy that can assist with all the issues related to losing a parent. Before showing how you can do this, here are some tips for dealing with the grief that comes with losing a parent.

Tips for Dealing with Losing a Parent 

  • Moderation - Crying and feeling emotions after losing a parent is natural and helpful in many cases. The important thing to remember is to look for the symptoms of depression. While sadness is okay during the grieving process, it has the chance of leading to major depression.
  • Family and Friends - Staying close to family and friends after losing a parent is an important way to strengthen family ties while at the same time make sure everyone involved is doing okay. Whether formal or informal, friends and family getting together is a good idea. 
  • Journaling - For those who write, keeping a journal about the loss of a parent is a good way to balance the emotional strain of the death. 
  • Ask for Help - While there are many positive things that can be done to help cope with losing a parent, unfortunately some people turn to alcohol or other drugs in an attempt to cope with the situation. This is why it is so important to ask for help if things start to spiral out of control.

Whatever stage of grief a person needs help with, the highly skilled professionals on GoMentor have practical advice and knowledge about the grieving process that can help.

Sometimes talking to someone who specializes in grief and loss can make a huge difference in the healing process.
