Getting Through the Grieving Process


Emotions can be overwhelming in the midst of grief so much so that just "getting through" each day is difficult. During this time it's important to remember that there are no guidelines for the recovery process. People heal in their own time and in their own way.

  • Don't be in a hurry to get through the grieving process. Allow yourself to do what you feel you need to do from day to day.

  • Know that it is not a betrayal to the memory of your loved one to begin the healing process.

  • Honor your loved one by talking about his or her life and sharing what you will miss the most.

  • Ask yourself what the deceased would want you to do.

  • Find a meaning and a purpose for being here.
