Fear

“I’m scared, Mommy—how will we get money to live now? “How will I survive this?” “What will happen to us?” “Who will take care of us?” These are the words of people who have just lost a loved one or learned of a life-threatening medical diagnosis. Because the bottom-line issue in loss is survival, the threat or actual breaking of a bond causes fear and sometimes panic and terror. Children, especially, are very blunt about their fears regarding economic security. When one parent dies, children express great concern for the health and well-being of the surviving parent.

Loss due to workplace change often causes employees to express similar fears about security and worries about the future. Loved ones, especially children, will express anxiety about how the family will live should the employee be laid off or moved to a lower-paying job with no hopes for career advancement.
