Grief

There Are No Rules for Grieving

Grief is as individual as you are. We are all unique, having had different life experiences that make us who we are.

So, I think it is safe to say, each of us will undergo a different grief experience.  There are no rules set in concrete regarding Grief.  In other words, there’s no certain way to grieve, or a certain time when you should be over it and no certain time to move on.

A few tips to help when you are grieving:

  1. Express yourself. Talking is often a good way to soothe painful emotions. …
  2. Allow yourself to feel sad. It’s a healthy part of the grieving process.
  3. Keep your routine up. …
  4. Sleep. …
  5. Eat healthily. …
  6. Avoid things that “numb” the pain, such as alcohol. …
  7. Go to counseling if it feels right for you

If you are interested in finding a local bereavement support group, look up a hospice program because they offer support groups you can attend free of charge in the community.

I grieved my three (3) sisters-in-law who died of complications from Huntington’s disease for many years.  It was not until I finished writing John & my story & publishing the nonfiction book, Watching Their Dance, did I feel like I had dealt with my grief and found peace.

We Can Never Lose HOPE….
