Sometimes the bravest word you can say is “help.” It may be that you have always been sufficient and don’t like to ask for help. Perhaps you think no one will understand how you are feeling.
Feelings of loneliness and isolation can occur. You may wonder if anyone feels the way you do. Thoughts can come across our mind “Am I crazy?”
If you can relate to any of this, you are not alone.
If people offer to help and support you, they usually mean it. We encourage you to take an extended hand offered through sympathy cards, phone messages, emails or social media posts. Take that hand, return those calls and respond to those emails, posts and cards. Maybe you’ve been thinking about joining a local support group - try it! Whatever it may be that you have been thinking about doing to help yourself, give yourself permission to do it! Not only is it important that you give yourself permission to grieve, you can allow yourself to be cared for by others. We do not have to be self-reliant all the time.
We here at Tabitha hope for the best for all of our bereaved families. We hope that you are doing the best that you can in this time of grief and loss. If there is any way we can help, please reach out.
