Tips on Grieving 

Some suggestions which may help you care for your grief include:

  • Accept the fact that no amount of wishful thinking can bring back your loved one.
  • Express as much grief as you feel.
  • Assume that you have to help yourself instead of letting time solve all.
  • Remember that others have experienced grief and sorrow.
  • Form new relationships and develop new interests.
  • Talk about your loss to others.
  • Give emotional support to other members of your family.
  • Recognize that complete adjustment is never achieved, but pain lessens with time.
  • Expect your recovery to follow a pattern of "two steps forward and one step backward."
  • Try to build a new life instead of trying to keep things the same.
  • Accept the emotional support of others.
  • Have meaningful religious faith practices.
  • Have close ties with family, relatives, and friends.
  • Accept your sorrow instead of trying to escape from it.
