Struggling with Grief?


Grief is one of those heavy, complicated feelings that can turn our world upside down. Whether you've lost a loved one, ended a significant relationship, or faced another type of deep loss, dealing with grief can feel like an uphill battle. But I want you to know, you're not alone, and it's okay to feel whatever you're feeling right now.

Grief doesn’t follow a straight path. Some days might be a bit easier, and others might hit you like a ton of bricks. It's important to give yourself permission to feel all the emotions – the sadness, the anger, the confusion, and even the moments of relief or joy that might come. All of these feelings are valid and part of the healing process.


One helpful approach is to create small, daily rituals that honor your grief and give you a sense of routine. This could be something as simple as taking a quiet walk each morning, journaling your thoughts and feelings, or lighting a candle in memory of your loved one. These rituals can offer a comforting sense of continuity and a safe space to process your emotions.


Don't hesitate to lean on your support system. Reach out to friends, family, or support groups who understand what you're going through. Sometimes just talking about your feelings with someone who gets it can lighten the load, even if just a little.


Remember to take care of yourself, too. Grief can take a toll on your physical health, so make sure you're eating well, getting some exercise, and resting. Self-care isn’t selfish; it’s necessary, especially during tough times.


And on those particularly rough days, remind yourself that it’s okay to ask for help. Seeking professional support from a therapist or counselor can provide you with additional tools and perspectives to navigate your grief.

Most importantly, be gentle with yourself. Healing takes time, and there’s no right or wrong way to grieve.


Celebrate the small victories – even just getting out of bed on a hard day is something to be proud of.


You are stronger than you know, and though the journey through grief is challenging, you have the power to find your way through it, day by day. We're in this together, and brighter days are ahead.
