As mentioned yesterday, not everyone grieves in the same way. With death we can be confronted with a number of emotions, including shock, numbness, sadness or perhaps even guilt. You may not experience all of these feelings and you may not display your sorrow the same way another does but know that when and if you do, it is not wrong for you to do so. So let yourself grieve. As you do it will relieve you. Remember there is no correct way to grieve. Some can do so with relative ease, others may feel like their grief is like a bottomless pit and may become worn out. One way we can alleviate some of our overwhelming sorrow is by taking care of ourselves.
Grief or sorrow can take a toll on us physically and emotionally. We have to pay attention to our physical health, get proper rest and eat healthy, nutritious foods. Granted you may not feel like shopping let alone cooking but just keep in mind that neglecting nutrition can leave us more prone to infection or illnesses which can only make matters worse. If possible, we can engage in some form of exercise, perhaps even walking. What about grabbing yourself a partner? How do you feel about accepting help from others? How can this be of benefit to you?
