3 Steps To Find Peace In the Midst Of Grief

01/03/2022


    The state of grief confronts even the most emotionally sturdy people, so feeling like you’re not able to handle what you’re facing is a challenge that we all face from time to time.
As hard as it may be to accept, though, any affliction, hurt or pain you are experiencing helps to shape the person you are. Making your way to the end of the tunnel says a lot about your ability to overcome the worst and return to a happy, peaceful state of being.
    If, however, you’re finding it difficult to get through your grief on your own, try the following strategies to make the journey less difficult.

Course of Action for Overcoming Grief

1. Acceptance. As difficult as it may sound to you right now, you’ll need to take your very best shot at accepting that something has happened to cause you grief. Bear in mind that acceptance doesn’t have to mean being nonchalant about the pain and hurt, because those are very real. Instead, tell yourself that it has already happened and is in the past.
You haven’t been given the power to change things that have already occurred, but you can certainly change how you deal with the challenge going forward!
Dig deep within your soul to find the strength to move forward.
Seek the help of someone disconnected from your circumstance and be
open to their approach and point of view.

2. Healing. It’s important to spend time doing things that bring relaxation and eliminate stress so you’re able to cope well as the days go by.
     >>Spend some time in meditation so you can have a relaxed heart and mind.
     >>Exercise. Physical activity encourages your body to release endorphins that lift your mood and help you feel better.
     >>Forgive yourself for whatever responsibility you’ve assumed for the outcome of the situation. Try to accept that life’s happenings are under the guidance of a Greater Being.

3. Thanksgiving. Especially during a time of grief, spend some time reflecting on all the blessings that have crossed your path. If you commit to putting aside your feelings for a moment, you’ll realize how much you truly have to be thankful for. Sometimes the blessings far outweigh the tragedies without you even knowing.
     >>Make a list of all the positives that you’ve witnessed in your life and in the lives of your loved ones.
     >>Meditate on those blessings until they become engrained in your conscious thought.
     >>Try to identify the lesson in the midst of what you’re experiencing and be thankful for it.

    Finding peace in the midst of grief will be difficult at the beginning, and there are really no rules for how long you should take to heal. However, remember that there’s a season for everything.
Your feelings of hurt and pain will evolve over time. They will always be with you, but will not always feel suffocating. As you practice these strategies and begin to heal, you’ll be able to grow and evolve with your grief so you can find peace and experience joy again.

Hello Friends!

Hi, my name is Melissa Ebken, and I'm so glad you found your way here. 

I am at home in the difficult spaces of peoples’ lives, willing to listen and to support those who work to grow themselves. I am a trained coach and have consulted with churches in conflict. Not your stereotypical minister, I embrace the Gospel with joy and laughter as I seek to help those around me grow in faith and understanding, always striving to leave people better than they came. An agent of wholeness, I create a safe space for people, especially those who have been marginalized, where they can understand how ridiculously loved and valued they are by God/Higher Power/Spirit, and to experience the difference that makes in life. 

I started the Pursuing Uncomfortable Podcast to share the stories of people who have faced life's most difficult challenges, to inspire you to lean into and overcome your own. It's helpful to know that you're not alone in your struggles and to see how others have navigated similar circumstances. You can listen to it here.
