Acceptance Is Everything; Self-Acceptance is key

The journey through grief is a very personal one. Each person’s journey may be different. Some people take a lot of time. Others take less. But, it is never easy.

It starts with listening to your own feelings and thoughts. Notice them and their effects on you; It’s not about what others feel is important.

Even though the journey through grief for one person may be very different from another, there are still many common emotions.

  • Confusion, feeling overwhelmed, shock and denial
  • Sadness, anger, guilt, fear and anxiety
  • Indecision, apathy and exhaustion

These emotions are all normal reactions. Allow yourself the space to feel what you’re feeling. Express those feelings and the things you experience on your journey. Seek support from a family member or a counseling professional. Don’t be embarrassed or ashamed about asking for help. It is not a weakness to do so. It shows your strength.
