How To Grieve
Knowing how to grieve is a crucial factor following bereavement and it’s not a good idea to put any particular time limit on how long your grieving process might last. As much as it’s important to heal and move forward with your life, it’s not necessary to impose any time scale on how and when you expect to feel better.
Letting your grief take it’s time and flow naturally, will allow any pain and sorrow to manifest of their own accord, rather than suppressing feelings in the hope they will go away. If you have children, it can be natural to want to remain strong and in control of what is going on around you, but it’s important to maintain a keen awareness of your own feelings and emotions.
When someone you love dies, the experience can bring with it an opportunity to reflect upon your own life and reassess what is of most significance. Going for long walks surrounded by nature, spending quality time with those close to you and writing down any thoughts that come to mind are all actions that will help you to heal your heart and to rediscover your drive.
