The Brain Plays Trick

August 19, 2022

What does your brain do when it’s grieving?
When you experience a traumatic loss, the part of our brains that handles emotions becomes active. This can affect how we think and process information; some people may find themselves overwhelmed with thoughts about what happened while others will be more focused on their feelings (and not remembering anything else).
Grief takes over your brain, altering how you think and feel.
Your thoughts are filled with sadness or anger as well feelings of isolation from friends and family who have been unable to console during this difficult time – all while trying desperately hold onto what little hope remains for healing or even thinking that true healing may not be possible.
