Our sense of self-safety is the self-protection system within us. It comes to our rescue at the time we are undergoing a great loss in life. Though grieving is normal, it is necessary to be cautious about reaching harmful extremes during bereavement. Keeping our good sense active is necessary to remain safe and sane during this time. However, some circumstances like being fully looked after by the others, though seemingly fortunate, make our sense of safety redundant so that the recovery from the bereavement is difficult.
