When We Refuse To Grieve
• Unresolved grief has been found to be a factor in the development of a wide range of psychological problems, including outbursts or rage, restlessness, depression, addiction, compulsion, anxiety and panic disorders.
• Unexpressed grief has been linked to the development or worsening of medical problems such as diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, cancer, asthma and a variety of allergies, rashes, aches and pains.
• We are at odds with our body’s built-in physiological processes to deal with a traumatic event.
• We are at odds with God’s spiritual intentions to meet us in the midst of the fire of our trauma, missing out on His plans to deepen our faith and strengthen our relationship with Him.
