Learning to Cope with Grief:
Grief is a consequence of loss and much as we want to we often find that we can’t go over it, can’t go under it, can’t go around it and have to go through it.
It’s OK to mourn. Think about the way it should have been, could have been, and might have been. Write it down.
What dreams did you sacrifice? What pain did you swallow? Mourning is the time to cry. And when you are done, if you want to, cry again.
