1. Embracing that your feelings are valid, real, and legitimate. Many people suffer from guilt, anger, remorse, and so on; all of those feelings are valid and should be acknowledged.
2. Be honest about your feelings with your loved ones and support system. Do not constantly try to put on a happy face or pretend nothing is wrong. This will lengthen the grieving process.
3. You might write in a journal about your feelings and experiences. Some people find great joy and comfort writing letters to lost loved ones.
4. Find and regularly attend a grief support network.
5. Allow yourself to look forward to the future and begin planning trips, self-care, and peaceful activities. Allow yourself to feel happier and hopeful, you are not dishonoring anyone when you do this.
6. Give yourself permission to take the appropriate time needed to work through the grief and remember that everyone deals with and works through grief differently. How long is appropriate?
When someone you care about is grieving, don’t think that you have to cheer them up, or keep an upbeat manner. What they may need most of all is your loving presence. If you are the one grieving, it is fine to ask someone to simply be with you. You may help that person feel more comfortable if you tell them what you do need, and what you don’t need.Working through grief is a process with many levels and unpredictable emotions. Allow yourself and those around you work through grief in the way that makes the most sense and is most comfortable for you. The most important aspect of dealing with grief is to understand that everyone processes grief differently. Discovering and communicating what you most need is critical to successfully putting grief behind you.
