Defining grief and mourning

Losing a loved one can be a difficult and painful experience. Grief is the emotional response to loss and can manifest in many different ways, including feelings of sadness, confusion, anger, and disorientation. It's normal to feel this way and everyone experiences grief in their own unique way. Mourning, on the other hand, is the act of publicly acknowledging and expressing one's loss and sadness. It can involve sharing your feelings with others and seeking support from a community. It's important to remember that everyone grieves differently and there is no right or wrong way to do it. But it's okay to ask for help and support during this difficult time.

Early Days

The loss you have experienced is a deep wound that will change your life forever. There is an emptiness that will take time to heal. The first days, weeks, and months following the loss of a loved one can be especially difficult. First holidays, birthdays and anniversaries can be especially hard. Don't expect yourself to feel or act normal, it's not possible. You may be feeling shock, numbness, or intense pain. You may be exhausted from caring for your loved one before they passed. It's important to remember that it's normal to feel this way. Take things one day at a time, be gentle with yourself and give yourself permission to feel and process your emotions. It's okay to not want to eat, see people or do everyday tasks. Take care of your physical well-being by getting enough rest, drinking water and eating when you can. Cry when you need to, and when the pain becomes less raw, allow yourself to laugh and remember the joy-filled memories. Let others help and support you, you are not a burden. Lower your expectations for yourself during this time and be patient and kind to yourself as you learn to navigate this new normal.

Grief is a personal and unique process, it cannot be rushed or forced.

It's important to remember that everyone grieves differently and there is no set timeline for healing. It can be lonely and isolating, that's why it can be helpful to grieve with others who understand what you're going through. Joining a support group can provide comfort and a sense of community. It's important to remember that there is no standard or set time limit for grief, it can take longer than you expect. Grief is a process with many ups and downs. It is a way to connect with the love and memories of your loved one. It's important to allow yourself time and space to grieve. Don't try to fight or suppress it. Instead, learn from it and ask yourself questions. Talk to trusted loved ones, a counselor or a support group. We are here to help and support you in any way we can. Try not to fight it.

The Cumulative Nature of Grief: Revisiting Past Losses

It's understandable that grief feels like a companion you are all too familiar with, as you've experienced loss before. Each new loss brings with it not only the pain and sorrow of the current loss, but also the pain and sorrow of past losses. Grief is interconnected and cumulative, it's not a singular or isolated event. It can feel overwhelming, chaotic and messy. It may feel like the world is falling apart. It's already hard enough to cope with a loss on its own, but when we have not fully grieved past losses, it can make it even more challenging. Unresolved pain, unfinished business and unprocessed grief can weigh heavily on us, making it hard to move on. Remember to be kind to yourself and take the time to grieve and process all of our losses, it's important for healing and moving forward.
