It can take some time to return to being reasonably normal after a major loss. Take the time to listen.

The ability to cope is created by beliefs. If my beliefs leads to behaviors of non compliance, my coping is diminished. If my beliefs lead to acceptance, then I am able to adapt and cope.

Grief is a mind and body response to loss. Grief, in turn, powers adjustment. Grieving is a process not a progression. If we are well adjusted to life, we are usually able to adjust to loss and grief.
© Copyright 2009 Delmar, Cengage Learning. All Rights Reserved.21 Summary If we have to use defense mechanisms to cope with life, then we have little ability to adjust to loss and grief. Experience also plays a role in our ability to cope with loss. Quality of life is determined by how much we appreciate what we have and the belief and hope that keeps us striving toward the future.

We need to try and focus on what we can accomplish day by day A person can experience healing, whether or not they have been cured
