Loss is not limited to the grieving process alone and also applies to the disappearance of something cherished, such as a possession, position or property. There are many different types of loss that can be experienced as part of the process of living and, as such, we exist within a continual process of change whereby things often become ‘lost’ along the way.
There are numerous types of losses that a person may experience during a lifetime. Some of the losses experienced are a result of living and include loss of job, income, home, property, relationship or treasured objects.
We can also be subjected to a loss of role, identity, independence, innocence, religious beliefs, freedom, and safety along with our expectations for the future. Every loss is difficult to accept and come to terms with as we try to re-organise life in a way that we hadn’t expected, or wanted to.
However, most life-changing events affect the physical environment within which we live relatively short-term in comparison to the longer-term impact of how we feel about ourselves; affecting our confidence, self-esteem and self-worth.
