Grief Lessons in Survival
  • What do I do now that youre gone? Well, when
    theres nothing else going on, which is quite
    often, I sit in a corner and I cry until I am too
    numbed to feel. Paralyzed motionless for awhile,
    nothing moving inside or out. Then I think how
    much I miss you. Then I feel fear, pain,
    loneliness, desolation. Then I cry until I am too
    numbed to feel. Interesting pastime.
  • -Peter McWilliams, How to Survive the Loss of a
    Love

  • Anger Why me? Its not fair.
  • Rage or blame self and/or others for the loss
  • Bargaining I d do anything to have him back.
  • Make promises to change if the person they lost
    is returned to them/to avoid what is the truth
  • Depression There is no hope. Im so sad. I just
    want to be alone.

    yourself or others.

Helping Others
  • Show your support through simple actions, such as
    offering to run errands or cook a meal.

    her, and allow the person to talk about his or
    her thoughts and feelings.
  • Tell the person that you have faith that he or
