Do you feel sorry for yourself about something that has happened in your life? Do you sometimes feel that, justified though your resentments or regrets may be, they're somehow holding you back?
When bad things happen to you, it's only natural to feel down about it. Life can be very hard, and the toughest of us are still vulnerable to knocks. We may suffer physically, emotionally and mentally. And sometimes there really isn't anything you can do about it.
What happens to you when bad things happen to you
Psychologists recognize that when you experience a setback, there is always a process of grieving to go through. Whatever would have happened if that setback had not been there now won't happen. You've lost that potential future that maybe you were counting on. People don't always recognize that the feelings of self pity they experience in such situations are grief, because most people think of grief as what you feel when someone dies. If nobody died, how can these feelings of resentment, anger, bitterness and regret over bad things that have happened to you be grief? But this is just what they are. The future you would have lived has died.
Grieving and self pity
Grieving is an appropriate response to loss. At the same time, it is important to understand that grieving is a healing process with a purpose. It is not a permanent state of being.
Grieving helps us acknowledge the loss we have suffered, separate ourselves from the future that is not to be, and prepare for a different future that will have its own positive aspects. When we make it through the first two stages, but don't embark on the third, we get swamped in self pity, forever dwelling on what was lost and turning our back on the possibility that life could still be good.
