The first reaction that many people feel is shock. It’s hard to wrap your mind around the fact that it’s happened.
Anger is an extremely common emotion after a burglary. How dare they come into your home and take something that isn’t theirs? You want them to pay for what they have done.
Feeling sad often comes after you’ve had time to process the break-in. A sense of loss for both your possessions and your sense of security.
Although there is absolutely nothing to feel embarrassed about, it’s still a very common emotion. How could you let it happen? Why hasn’t it happened to anyone else you know?
A lot of people become wary of their surroundings and people they once trusted. It’s natural to feel like you can no longer trust anyone. This is especially true when the criminal isn’t found and arrested.
Why has it happened to you? Why your home? You may feel like your personal space has been violated. You no longer feel comfortable in your own home.
There are probably lots of questions running through your mind. Why? How? When? Will you get your stuff back? What do you do now?
Some people often can’t come to terms with the burglary for quite a while. They don’t want to admit that it’s happened.
Someone has entered your home uninvited and stole your stuff. It’s NORMAL to feel scared of being home alone. Tell your friends and family how you feel.
What do you do next? Who else do you need to tell? What else do the police expect you to do? You’re probably feeling a lot of stress and pressure to get things done. All you want to do is hide in bed.
The final emotion after a break-in is acceptance. You need to finally accept that it happened and take steps to make sure that it doesn’t happen again. This means properly securing your home with high quality security measures.
