The only cure for grief is to grief.
Don’t expect miracles overnight. Allow sufficient time for the grieving period to run its course.
Grief shared is grief diminished.
Let the right people know you need support and feedback. They cannot bring you comfort unless you allow them to enter your sorrow.
Death ends a life, not a relationship.
Self-help groups have been successful in providing necessary emotional intervention through the crisis of death. People in these groups understand your fears and frustrations. Allow them to help you.
Your crisis of death can give way to the birth of new ways of living without your loved one. This is your call to action. Death is a challenge to new life.In times of crisis, silence is not golden. Talk things out with friends, family, counselors.
Trust yourself and respect your feelings. In time you will gradually make peace with your loss.
Feeling better is not an indication that you loved less. Rather it is a sign of your determination to let go and get on with life.
