4 Ways to Be Happy Again After Losing a Loved One
You have lost someone you love and as a result you are grieving and devastated right now. But you should know that this is not the end of the world and there is always hope. Here are four ways to found the way back to happiness.
Believe that you are going to be OK.
Now that you read this, you must believe that every sadness and misery is of a temporary nature and everything will be fine at the end. True, it’s hard to say exactly when, but you have to be sure that you will eventually be fine.
Believe that you can survive and thrive.
Thriving might sound arrogant at first glance, but those who lose a loved one, they become stronger, as they were able to overcome one of the biggest and most painful obstacles, thanks to which the bad experiences of the life seem to be easily overcome for such people.
Believe that you can reinvent your life.
Life continues. You had a life with the person that you lost (we can call that life number one) and now you have a new life without that person (we call that life two) and you get to decide what you want that life to be, what are the objectives for that life and the obstacles that you should overcome. If you take this approach and attitude you can again live a lively, interesting, and happy life.
Be OK when there is not going to be an answer
Why do some young people die sooner then old people? Why do good people die and bad people live? You should know that there will be many unanswered questions in life and you just have to at some point be OK with thinking, “Well, maybe there is no answer. Maybe it’s part of the great mystery of life.”
