Death and grief are often described as a path taking you through the four seasons. I've got this clip from a friend when I went through grieving. I hope you will also find it inspirational.
Grieving people are usually concerned about their feelings and experiences. They wonder: Am I normal?; What is wrong with me?
As discussed in the previous post, a grieving person may experience a lot of changes and feelings throughout his body as well as in his relationships with other people. These physical-, social-, and emotional changes (see previous post) are normal. If you are going through the immense pain of the grieving process, print out the following seven hints for a grieving person and read and remember it many times during your days:
1. You are loveable even when you are a confused mess.
2. Crying is a gift.
3. Almost every thought, behaviour and feeling is normal.
4. You are not alone.
5. People are uncomfortable with grieving people.
6. No matter how bad you feel, you will survive.
7. It takes as long as it takes.
