Can a mourning process last for life?

I think it may be.

My only experience with it lasted a few years.

The first year was the hardest: I woke up every morning and stayed a few seconds in peace, and then I remembered the horror, death… Suddenly the pain would grab me in my belly, and with me more or less stay all day.

Until one day it was no longer there.It became drowsy with time.

All people are different in dealing with such painful events, and I assume that some people can never really stop mourning.

Mourning is a complex process that can last for years.But a hallmark of mourning is also that the loss is ultimately adequately processed and you can move forward with your life again. The loss is permanent: that is accepted and you can now also enjoy looking back on the fun things you have experienced.

In life-long mourning, we speak of ‘ stagnant mourning ‘.The processing process is not continuing, and the phase of acceptance and ‘ looking back with heat ‘ will not be achieved. In that case, a helping hand may be required. There are therapists who specialize in the re-launch of the mourning process.

Yes.A mourning process is a state of sorrow, of looking back over time and is often accompanied by feelings of fear, self-reproving and anger.

It is very difficult to break out of this downward spiral without help.

It can certainly take life long, this is also dependent on the mourning process and where one mourns.What is fixed is that mourning is an emotional process that costs time and energy. Psychiatrist Elisabeth Kubler-Ross has developed the phase model for this.This model says that you are through five phases during the mourning process. The first phase is denial, which is followed by anger. The third stage is fighting, fourth depression and the last acceptance. I think it is important that all phases be passed on, in order to be able to mourn properly. Mourning is a long process, but time can make it more enjoyable. Loss and sadness belong, you learn how to continue with your life alongside those emotions.

Parents who lose a child never go all the way over the loss and sorrow, causing them to mourn for a lifetime.Most can give it a place and continue their lives, but the pain remains.

The speed of the mourning process is determined for a lot with how much movement (commotion) you have throughout your life.If you do not work, do not have a hobbies, replace your ambitions with daily cannabis, then your mourning process will not pass a meter windscreen. The more people will experience a problem if you stay in your bed all the better. If your life is connected to your reality with 1 thread, that mourning process will have to go by droplet along that thread. The more your life is a spider web of connections (affiliations, engagements with people, hobbies, ambitions, the babbling with the baker…) All the quicker the mourning process can expire. Compare it with a pleasant situation that flies the time.

Now this only determines whether the mourning process will take a gravel path or an Autobahn.It does not have to do with speed but with how much resolution can take place in 1 sequence. Instead of a bottleneck a widening.
