Five Stages of Healing

Submitted on Oct 4, 2011 by  DrKatMd

Hey All,

Sorry I've been gone soooooo long, but between school and working 2 jobs and dealing with the children; my life can get a tad crazy at times. ANYWHOOO

This week, and for the next couple of weeks, we will focus on the stages of healing. In order to heal, you have to learn what you need to heal from and what your going to do to heal.

Whoever wrote the lyrics to “Breaking up is hard to do” was right on the money. Unfortunately, the odds are not in your favor when it comes to experiencing a breakup. In fact, most of us will experience a heart-breaking breakup sometime in our lives. And although no one can fully prepare you for a breakup and there are few words that can cure the pain you’ll feel, we still believe that advice goes a long way. With a little bit of know-how, and an understanding of the stages you’ll go through with a breakup, you can be confident that your heart will eventually heal...

Five Stages of Healing

The emotions that we go through (also called the five stages of grief) are just as relevant to a breakup as they are to experiencing a death of a loved one because both can be incredibly painful experiences. While you may not go through these stages in order, it’s natural and healthy to go through them at some point.

This week we will look at DENIAL.

Denial: You deny that whatever happened  has happened and isolate yourself from your loved ones. To help get through this stage, accept what has happened and don’t be afraid to ask for help and support from those who love you and are there for you.

This week, write down what you have been denying, whether it is addiction, diesease, abuse, distress, pain, suffering, bills, a relationship; whatever it is, write it down. Then write down what happened surrounding it and what you are going to do to rid yourself of that siutaion. Then say it out loud and speak it into exsistence... TRUST ME, I will be doing it too becuase we are in this journey TOGETHER--

Peace and Blessings
