Losing someone you love or care deeply about is very painful. You may experience a variety of difficult emotions, and it’s sometimes hard to imagine that the anger and sadness you feel will ever fade. It’s important to remember that grief is a natural and normal reaction to a significant loss, and that you’re not alone. Reach out to your support network through family and friends, and don’t be afraid to lean on the people who care about you. While there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there are healthy ways to cope with the pain that, in time, can allow you to heal and resume your regular routines.
A few things to remember as you begin to recover from a loss:
