â€œLife is complex. Money loss is a materialistic loss but mental health loss is a life-time loss".
Here are some things to consider if you've faced a sudden large financial loss.
- Don't make any sudden financial moves.
- Change your mindset and reduce your lifestyle.
- Look for additional sources of income.
- Talk about it with your loved ones.
- Focus on the present and stop worrying about the future.
Most people grieve when they lose something or someone important to them. The way grief affects you depends on lots of things, including what kind of loss you have suffered, your upbringing, your beliefs or religion, your age, your relationships, and your physical and mental health.
How Does Grief Affect You?
People react in different ways to lose. Anxiety and helplessness often come first. Anger is also common, including feeling angry at someone who has died for "leaving you behind". Sadness often comes later. Feelings like these are a natural part of the grieving process. Knowing that they are common may help them seem more normal. It's also important to know that they will pass. Some people take a lot longer than others to recover. Some need help from a counselor or therapist or their GP.Â But you will eventually come to terms with your loss, and the intense feelings will subside.
How to Cope with Grief and Loss
There's no instant fix. You might feel affected every day for about a year to 18 months after a major loss. But after this time the grief is less likely to be at the forefront of your mind.Â There are practical things you can do to get through a time of bereavement or loss.
Any kind of loss is not as important as life is. Our health should be our priority. We can earn things just once we lose, but if we lose our health, it canâ€™t bring in a normal way so easily. We know money is very important for our life but it is not important to live. Trust yourself and god, this financial loss will be over.
In case, you still feel sad, low, or worried, then talk to your loved ones and do breathing exercises and meditation. Read positive quotes. Donâ€™t try to overthink the situation but try to solve it.
