Critical issues associated with understanding coping and facing death
Losing a loved one is very painful as it brings about difficult emotions which may seem as if they may never end. While there are no standards of accessing ways to grieve, there are healthier ways to cope with the pain. Noteworthy, everyone grieves differently; some may withdraw and isolate themselves while others engage in activities that distracts their grieving.
Grieving depends upon a number of factors such as individual personality, life experience and faith. Healing happens little by little, some may grieve in weeks while some may grieve in years. Patience is imperative in the healing process; it allows the process to unfold naturally.

In finding meaning for the death of a loved one you can choose to grow from the experience rather than give up to the tragedy. For that matter the choice to transform the tragedy in to an important life experience is not an easy on perseverance and endurance are key components (Tomarken, Alexis, et al 730).
Finding the purpose and meaning of life after someone’s death is a crucial element in the healing process. A person starts to question ones philosophy of life and explores religious and spiritual standards. In doing so you analyze and appreciates what really matters in life.
