Let's Work Through OUr Grief

First, Let's Get A Better Understand of What Grief Is.

Grief is described as a deep sorrow that comes after the death of a loved one. However, this same level of grief can appear when a family member or friend moves away, you switch schools, or you lose a family pet. Grief is real and it can really cause a lot of heartaches, but there is help.

There Are 5 Stages Of Grief

Stage 1: SHOCK

Did this REALLY just happen?

Stage 2: DENIAL

Absolutely not! There's no way this could have happened. They'll be back.

Stage 3: ANGER

Noooo! How could they leave me like this? Why did this have to happen to me?


I don't feel like doing anything. Leave me alone.


Although I'll miss them, I sure did enjoy the time we had together.

When You're Feeling Overwhelmed, Remember These Activities

Believe it or not, counting can truly calm you down and get you back to a peaceful place.

Countdown from 5 to 1 and identify:

  • 5 things you can feel

  • 4 things you can see

  • 3 things you can hear

  • 2 things you can smell

  • 1 thing you can taste

Writing is also a great way to calm yourself down. It truly worked for me. When you're feeling down, grab a notebook and write out your feelings. This is private to you-so say everything you want to say.


Create a memory box. Gather up items that remind you of your loved one- this could be a shirt, a picture, their favorite book- or whatever causes you to think of them. Place these times in a safe box and decorate it with positive words and drawings. 

And if you ever feel the need to it. There's healing in your tears.
