Losing a loved one

It doesn’t matter if it’s a close friend or a family member, losing someone you love can be one of the most painful things to go through. It might be hard to imagine every feeling okay again. You might not feel the same ever again. It might be a pain that you can never fully heal. Over time, you can learn to cope with it. Everyone’s experience of losing a loved one will be different and the way you cope will be different. This means the same coping strategies might not work for everyone. You could try and see what works for you. These might help:

Let yourself feel. The grieving process is painful. You’ll exper ience a world of emotions. Let yourself feel as they come. You might want to fight your feelings and be strong for those around you. This is okay. You can be strong and still feel. Make sure you give yourself the time and space to sit with your emotions. T his will only make you stronger.

Remember grief looks different for everyone. The death of a loved one impacts people differently. Your grieving process might not look the same as someone else’s. Remind yourself of this. Various emotions might affect you at unexpected points during your grieving process. If this happens, be open to it, and don’t get frustrated with yourself.

Find support. Reach out to some you can trust. It could be a friend, family, or a therapist. If you feel comfortable, tell them wh at you are going through. Make sure that they’re a good listener. This is a hard time, and it will only be harder if you try to deal with it alone. There is no shame in getting support - it takes courage to share what you are facing.

Take care of yourself. When we are stressed, it is easy to neglect our minds and bodies. Make sure you are getting enough sleep, eating well, and giving yourself a chance to relax. It’s important - especially now - do things that make you feel good. You don’t have to feel hap py but make yourself feel comfortable and cared for. It can be something as simple as reading a good book. Whatever it is, just make sure you create time for it. As hard as it might be, stay positive. Look for silver linings wherever you can find them. Eve n the smallest amount of hope can go a long way

Change your perspective and uncover a way forward for you!

Here are some things that can help you with that.
