Grief-Newsletter-ResourceIn the days, weeks and months following a loss, it’s important to remember the grieving process has no set timeline. Grieving is not a linear experience or the same from person to person— some days you may feel positive, while others may feel hopeless.

To help guide you through your grief journey, continue reading below for reliable information about life after a loss.

Grief Resources for the Bereaved

During periods of intense grief, people often don’t realize that it’s okay to feel a wide array of emotions. While there’s no right or wrong way to grieve the loss of a loved one, there are healthy ways to cope with grief, including:

  • Accept that grief can trigger unexpected feelings, including anger and denial.
  • Understand that the grieving process will be unique to you and your situation.
  • Seek out support from family members, friends and professional support groups.
  • Support yourself emotionally by taking care of yourself physically.
  • Recognize the difference between grief and depression.

These are all healthy ways to cope with grief that, in time, can help you come to terms with your loss.

If at any point you feel the pain is too much to handle, consider seeking support to help you through the difficult time.
