The Grieving Process

“Grieving doesn’t make you imperfect. It makes you human.”
– Sarah Dessen

Grief is a normal and natural response to the death of a loved one. The grief process is unique to each person, and no two people will experience it in exactly the same way.

Grief is a journey, and it will take time to work your way through it. Be patient and kind with yourself.

Please know that it is not uncommon to feel overwhelmed by your emotions and the tasks of daily life. When you are grieving, activities may tend to take you more time and energy than they did before. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself feeling more irritable, more distracted, and less motivated to take part in your normal routine. You may even notice disruptions with eating and sleeping. Seek immediate assistance from a physician if you are experiencing thoughts or desires of hurting yourself and/or others.
