Coping with grief

Here are some things to remember:

  • There is no finish line. This is not a race. Grief has its own timespan, unique to you.
  • There is no timeframe when pain and grief are completed. 
  • What will and can happen as you allow your grief, is that you will learn to live differently with pain.
  • Anger will happen. So will fear, peace, joy, guilt, confusion, and a range of other emotions. You should expect a variety of intense emotions, often several of them at once.
  • You will be exhausted from grief.    
  • Grief can make you feel crazy. This does not mean you are crazy.
  • There is no way to do grief "wrong."  It may be painful, but it is never wrong.
  • Everyone grieves differently.
  • You may experience physical symptoms from your grief.
  • You grieve because you love and love is a part of you. Love changes, but does not end.
