Grief can be closely related to depression if you let it get out of control. Grief is another word for sadness and dealing with grief is just a fact of life and is something that can be easily overcome given the right thought process to deal with it and the right attitudes about life.

If you are suffering from grief, chances are it is because you have experienced something in life that you did not want to happen. Unwanted things happen all the time in life, but everything that happens, happens because it has a purpose. Life should not be taken too seriously, because it the whole infinite existence that we live out for eternity, life is a very minute part of everything else that exists. We all may not know of what else is out there or have the faith to believe, but really, life is about letting go and accepting things that happen and dealing with them as a necessary part of life.

To deal with grief, we just have to learn to accept anything. We can find peace and happiness in life when we learn to accept all things. As we go through life, the only thing that we can do when we learn is to let go of old concepts and thought processes. As we age, this is what we do. We let go of attachments to things and accept new experiences, both good and bad. The key to overcoming grief is not to look at things in terms of right or wrong because thinking like that is an illusion and it is not real. Everything happens because something caused it to happen, so everything has to happen as it does. If you are reeling from grief due to financial loss or a death in the family, the only thing you can do is trust in change. The more you hang onto grief and suffering, the harder your life is going to be to deal with. The only thing constant in life is change and if you can accept change daily in your life and trust that things are happening because they are supposed to, you will be able to deal with grief appropriately. You can choose to suffer and deal with grief, but this is only because you choose to. if you want to suffer you can, but you make the choice to do so. The best way to overcome grief is to help other people and share love and let it into your life. When you do you start to realize the big picture and understand reasons for things that were not so clear before. Love breeds more love and grief and sadness breed the same. Try keeping these virtues in mind when dealing with grief and you should have no problem when knowing how to deal with grief in the future.
