It is difficult to imagine how it feels to lose a loved one but when it does happen people mourn and express their grief in a variety of ways. You can contact support groups and the healthcare service for support and help.
We are all different and view death in different ways. Losing a loved one is a life-changing experience for those left behind. It may be difficult to grasp what has happened, regardless of whether death ends a long period of suffering, comes suddenly or is a natural consequence of old age. Live changes. At the same time, life goes on.
Grief is a natural emotional reaction to the loss of a loved one. Processing that grief is so much more than simply feeling sad. While we may carry a certain amount of grief with us for the rest of our lives, over time it will become less painful. The process of mourning is different for everyone.
Children need to understand what is happening, just like adults
Losing someone we love hurts. While this applies to children and adults alike, a child’s understanding of death may differ from an adult’s and they may have different reactions. You may want to protect your child by not talking about difficult subjects, but even the smallest child needs to understand the context in which they live.
While the support of your friends and family is invaluable, the best long-term support often comes from others who have experienced something similar and understand what it means. There are associations, religious communities and networks for survivors to which you can turn for help at times of crisis. Some can be reached around the clock, either by telephone or on social media.
