What to do when grief sets in...

When the path ends, the journey just begins

It’s hard to explain the depth of grief until you have been there. Tears come and won’t stop. Anger sometimes helps to hide the fear. Avoiding or distracting yourself can be a temporary fix. But it can also close you off from precious memories.

This emotional wound is just as real as a trauma to the soul. The grieving process is important for healing. Eventually, grief can actually help us back on the road to soothing our loss and reconnection.

Waiting and anticipating loss can create fearful experiences.

Common symptoms include: tearfulness, depression, emotional numbness, forgetfulness, fatigue.

You might feel disbelief such as “its not really happening to me”

You might think “things will never be the same or life has no meaning or why did God do this?”
