What is Grief?

Chapel Ridge Funeral Home in Markham understands that the death of a loved one is life's most painful event. Our reaction to death remains one of life's least understood and taboo topics. Because of this, unfortunately, grievers are left feeling completely alone in their loss.

Grief is Natural

Grief is a natural and completely normal human reation to death; especially the death of a loved one. It hurts. Sadness, denial, guilt, physical discomfort, and sleeplessness are some of the symptoms of grief. It is like an open wound which must become healed. At times, it seems as if this healing will never happen. While some of life's joys begin to return, life never seems to get back to the way it was. You might feel lost and incomplete without that loved one in your life. However, in time, you can heal.

Allow Yourself to Heal

Healing is a process of allowing ourselves to feel, experience, and accept the pain. In other words, we give ourselves permission to heal by first accepting our grief. Allowing ourselves to experience these feelings is the beginning of that process.

While you might feel like you'll never feel good again, the healing process can take much less time than we have been led to believe. There are two missing parts. One is a safe, loving, professionally guided atmosphere in which to express our feelings; the other is knowing how and what to communicate.

If you'd like to talk to a funeral director, please contact Chapel Ridge Funeral Home and Cremation Centre in Markham today. We're there for you during this difficult time and can refer you to local councelling services in the York region.
