In many of my previous blog posts, I have given grief-related advice based on my own experiences. However, today I decided to share the advice of others from the grief community as well as some helpful websites I have seen throughout the years from a bit of research. So without further ado, I hope you find the collection/harvest of advice below helpful.
"You will find your smile again. You'll even find that side-splitting laugh again!"
'Grieving Is Ok' says...
"You'll be okay eventually, I promise you. It won't always feel that hard and you'll learn how to live with it and please- enjoy the moments with the ones around (your family etc.) and value them."
"To allow yourself to feel all the feels. Don't suppress it."
'Finding A Way Forward' says...
"Your grief matters, don't hold it in and try to be strong. You lost them too."
