Five Stages Grief Exploring The Kübler Ross Model

Grief is personal

Loss is a very personal experience. Although the Kübler-Ross model can help us understand the process of grief, the truth is we all grieve in our own way. When we lose a loved one, we tend to grieve our entire lives. It’s only the intensity that goes down with time. But the love remains the same in our hearts all our lives. Some of us may find it challenging to identify all the stages or classify their messy feelings into any of them. Regardless, you need to be patient with your feelings and give yourself the time you need to cope with loss.

Grief never ends

If you think you need some help to cope with your feelings of grief, then do visit a mental health professional. A therapist can guide you through the process of grief and empower you to come to terms with reality. Professional help may also be needed as the stages of grief can lead to certain physical health issues like heart rhythm disorders, broken heart syndrome, and heart attack. {8}

In case you are supporting someone going through grief, give them the space they need to talk about their emotions and encourage them to seek professional help.
