General Summary

The loss of a loved one can be one of the hardest experiences you will ever face in life. When a loved one dies, the loss is often marked by intense grief, sadness, pain, anger, or even relief that a loved one is no longer suffering. Grief is a natural and normal process, but everyone's experience of grief will be different and unique. Allow yourself to experience grief in your own way. Talk about the loss as much as you want to and need to. Seek out friends and family members who are willing to listen without judgement or censure. There are healthy ways of coping with loss, and now it is your task to let yourself discover the things that bring you comfort and healing.



A few things to remember as you begin to recover from a loss:

  • Each of us experiences grief differently, depending on our coping style and life experiences.

 

  • The healing process happens gradually, and can’t be rushed or ignored.

 

  • It’s okay to cry…but it’s also okay if you find that you can’t. Crying is a normal response to sadness, but it’s not the only one.

 

  • There’s no set time frame for grieving, and different individuals may take different amounts of time to heal.

 

  • Allow yourself to face your feelings and express them. Try talking to a trusted friend or spiritual leader, joining a support group, or writing about your loss in a journal.

 

  • The mind and body are deeply connected. Though it may be hard at first, remember to take care of yourself physically so that you can allow yourself to begin to recover emotionally.

 

  • It’s always okay to seek professional help when you need to.
