Everyone at one point or another will experience the harshness of grief. While grief is extremely unpleasant, it’s useful to keep in mind that it is a universal experience. Now, while everyone has the ability to experience grief, it’s important to note that not everyone experiences grief in the same way. Truthfully, over time, grief can and often will begin to change.

There’s a lot that goes into planning a funeral. One of the most important things to remember about grief is that it is personal. This means that while grief can and is experienced all over the world, it is not the same for everyone. While some people may be able to push their grief aside and power forward, there are others who are debilitated by the feeling and struggle to come to terms with the loss. Wherever in the spectrum of grief you fall is irrelevant so long as you avoid comparing your progress to others’. If you are struggling with your feelings of grief, then we recommend consistently reminding yourself that it is completely normal and expected that you handle a loss this way. Rather than beat yourself up for taking too long to return to ‘normal’ be gentle with yourself. Give yourself as much time and space as you need to process your emotions and feelings. When you feel healthy enough to speak to other people again, then we recommend gathering a trusted group of friend or family and opening up to them about your grief journey. Chances are that this will create a snowball effect where everyone begins revealing how they’ve been managing during this difficult time. Additionally, speaking to others is a great idea as it allows for the emotional support that you would otherwise be missing if you were facing your grief alone.
While you are in the midst of your grief, it could also be helpful to remind yourself that things can and eventually will chance. It’s so easy to feel as though you will be stuck in your grief forever, and while it may truly feel this way, you will eventually come to heal from it in your own way. While you still may not fully get over the loss in your life, the grief will lessen over time, and you will learn how to live life in a new, altered way.
Avoid listening to phrases such as “You need to get over it.” While this may seem true to you, it is not the way things work. Truthfully, there is no ‘getting over’ a death, no matter how bad you want to. Just because your loved one is gone doesn’t mean that you stop loving them any less. In fact, it is very likely that you never will fully get over the death but over time you will learn to live with the reality in your own way.
