How to survive your grief
By: Ja'Quise Ross
Grief erupts into your life, rearranging everything
The truth is, survival in early grief has a very small circumference. It’s not an ordinary time, and ordinary rules do not apply.
Do not turn your anger on yourself
Looking back on this list now, I am somewhat amazed at myself for this one. I wrote: do not turn your anger in on yourself. This is what you are doing when you think you aren’t doing your grief right, that you’re the one messing up your continued connection, that you should be better at this. Notice you’re angry.
Grief will last a LifeTime
Grief is not just a series of events, or stages or timelines. Our Society places enormous pressure on us to get over loss, to get through the grief. The loss happens in time, in fact in a moment, but its aftermath lasts a lifetime.
