LOSING A LOVED ONE~BEREAVEMENT

The death of a loved one can be devastating,bereavement affects people in different ways. There's no right or wrong way to feel.

Stages of bereavement or grief

Experts generally accept there are four stages of bereavement: 

  • accepting that your loss is real
  • experiencing the pain of grief
  • adjusting to life without the person who has died 
  • putting less emotional energy into grieving and putting it into something new – in other words, moving on

You'll probably go through all these stages, but you won't necessarily move smoothly from one to the next. Your grief might feel chaotic and out of control, but these feelings will eventually become less intense.

Feelings of grief

Give yourself time – these feelings will pass. You might feel:

  • shock and numbness – this is usually the first reaction to the death, and people often speak of being in a daze
  • overwhelming sadness, with lots of crying
  • tiredness or exhaustion
  • anger – for example, towards the person who died, their illness, or God
  • guilt – for example, guilt about feeling angry, about something you said or didn't say, or about not being able to stop your loved one dying

Coping with grief

Talking and sharing your feelings with someone can help. Don't go through this alone. For some people, relying on family and friends is the best way to cope. 

If you don't feel you can talk to them much – perhaps you aren't close, or they're grieving, too – you can contact local bereavement services through:

 

 

Cruse Bereavement offer advice,support ( including counselling) and information for those that have lost a loved one. 

 

Stars new logo

Stars Cambridge 

Supporting Young People Facing Grief. Everyone will experience,bereavement during their life, but for young people, the death of a parent or another important person in their lives can be terrible to deal with.

Young people need time to be listened to and to speak about their fears and hopes for the future, but sometimes that’s difficult when others in the family are coping with their own grief. It can be helpful for young people to have support from someone outside of the family, to enable them to share their thoughts and emotions, which if left unexpressed, can lead to anger, disruptive behaviour and concentration issues at school.

Our counsellors, in Cambridgeshire, can help by listening and encouraging young people to express their painful emotions through creative play and work.

Hope again 

Hope Again is the youth website of Cruse Bereavement Care. It is a safe place where you can learn from other young people, how to cope with grief, and feel less alone.

HEALTHY AND UNHEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS

Healthy relationships

This is a caring relationship

  • Being good friends
  • Freedom to do your own thing
  • Time and space to see your friends
  • Having your own interests
  • Knowing your opinions are respected
  • Listening to each other
  • Having fun together
  • Trusting each other
  • Being able to disagree with each other
  • Being able to go at your own pace- including sexuality
  • Making decisions together
  • Being able to talk about it when you have an argument
  • Feeling safe
  • Respecting the decisions if either of you want to end the relationship

This is not a caring relationship

  • Your boyfriend/girlfriend gets angry when you talk to someone else.
  • Your boyfriend/girlfriend is verbally aggressive or physically threatening.
  • Your boyfriend/girlfriend calls you names, puts you down, and makes you feel bad.
  • Your boyfriend/girlfriend uses force, threats, emotional blackmail, or bargains to make you do things you don’t want to do.
  • Your boyfriend/girlfriend threatens to harm any of your family, friend, pets or property.
  • Your boyfriend/girlfriend posts unpleasant or intimately revealing things about you on the internet.

 

If any of these things are happening to you, you may be in an abusive relationship.

Relationship abuse is not a one off event. It is a cycle and usually gets worse if nothing is done to stop it.

It is not your fault- Abusers are responsible for their behaviour. If you are in an abusive relationship the best thing you can do is to end it. This may be tough and you may need help.

  • Find support from the people who care about you
  • Contact one of the support agencies listed below
  • Go out in groups (not alone) for a while
  • Carry a mobile phone or phone card and phone numbers of people or organisations who can offer support
  • Carry money
  • Make sure you can always get home safely
  • Speak to an adult you trust or one of the organisations below for support.
