How to navigate grief

Grief is complex
Grief is a mix of emotions such as sadness, anger, guilt, frustration, fear, and anxiety whenever we experience a loss or anticipate a loss. You may feel very conflicted, and their feelings may be very intense, which feels even more overwhelming.

Regrets
Don’t play the “what if game.” 

Individual
Don’t compare — your experience is unique.

Empathy
Empathy is not sympathy.
Be a friend to have a friend.
It is about connecting with an emotion of someone that is struggling.

Feelings Aren’t Final
Feelings aren’t forever.
Feel like flow not like forever.
