We need to understand that grief is the most natural response to loss and that everyone experiences grief in different ways. Hence, there is no one course of action or time duration, for getting through it. The key, here, is to understand that grieving isn’t a problem to solve, but a process to understand and go through.
Toughing it out is definitely not the answer, nor a distraction. You need to let yourself feel the pain for being able to accept it. Acceptance is the hardest yet most important part of the process of grieving. This acceptance is hard because, at the moment, you just want to block it, ignoring it seems easier than accepting it. You feel angry at the doctors, the treatment, and most importantly, at yourself. Let yourself feel all of it. Don’t hold back.
Pen Down Your Emotions
“I wish I could talk to them one last time.” Write a letter to the one you’ve lost, telling them how much you miss them. Say everything you weren’t able to. Express your love, express your emotions. Forgive yourself and give yourself time.
Confide your Feelings to your Loved Ones
It's okay to express your feelings to your loved ones and not take pride in being too strong or being self-sufficient. It's okay to seek emotional support. Rather than isolating yourself in a room, surround yourself with your family and friends. This will provide a healthy outlet for your painful feelings.
