There are, however, some things you can do to aid in your recovery process and ensure you are on the best possible path toward healing:
Professional help won’t cure your grief, but it can help you feel like you have more control over where the grief is taking you.
Finding a support group will help you to connect with them.
Some people are able to find a greater sense of peace and understanding through personal faith practices.
During these times, it can be helpful for you and other loved ones to find special ways to honor the person you lost.
Resist the urge to disconnect from others.
When the forward motion starts again, it is an instinct for some to try to hang onto their grief out of a sense of duty to the person they lost, or fear that letting go will mean forgetting.
Little by little, life and joy will return to you, and though the ache may not ever fully go away, things will get better.
