Whether you are experiencing loss or are anticipating life without a loved one, grief truly is an all-consuming experience. Humans are social creatures built for companionship. Your relationships — and connections you shared with people who have passed — give your life meaning. The same is true for the connections that exist throughout your life.
A key need for mourning humans is receiving and accepting support from others. This empathy allows you to express natural and necessary grief outside of yourself. Keep in mind, just as grief looks different for every individual, so does connecting with others in grief. Everyone has different needs, desires and even expectations, so be gentle with yourself and others around you.
The varied perspectives you will hear from others on their loss can provide you an opportunity to reflect — to see that what you are feeling is as powerful as it is normal. Even the most painful thoughts are easier to wrestle with when you’ve found others who have experienced them too. Seeking connections provides you with the tools you may need to process a loved one’s death, better incorporate grief into your story, and come to terms with how your life has changed.
Judgement-free discussion, listening ears and genuine understanding will help you learn more about how you may adjust to the overwhelming presence of grief. Carry it with others, instead of shouldering it alone. These people will never replace the person who died, but they can and will make life worth living again. Such is part of the journey of grief.
