Certain days may be more difficult than others while grieving the loss of a loved one. With Valentine's Day coming up soon, it's safe to say that your celebration of love will look a little different this year. Holidays might bring back fond memories of your loved one, as well as other tough emotions and feelings as we proceed through life without them at our side.
Here are some ways to manage grief on Valentine's Day:
- Write a letter to your loved one
- Light a candle or buy flowers in honor of your loved one
- Give yourself a gift for Valentine's Day, like flowers or chocolates
- Spend time with someone you can share memories of your loved one with
- Reminisce by looking at pictures or listen to special songs significant to you and your loved one
This month, allow yourself to talk about your loved one, talk or write a letter to your loved one, and feel any and all emotions that come your way. If it all becomes too much, reach out to friends, family or support groups to help ventilate your feelings.
"One of the most important things I've learned is how deeply you can keep loving someone after they die. You may not be able to hold them or talk to them, and you may even date someone else, but you can still love them every bit as much."
— Sheryl Sandberg, Option B
