Myth about grief:

“The pain will go away fast If I ignore it”

The fact is, if you continuously ignore your emotions rather than dealing with it head on, it can make the situation much worse and will take a toll on your mental health.

When dealing with sadness/grief, it is vital to cater to your needs as much as possible. This doesn’t mean dropping every responsibility, however, finding time to have your own peace can go a long way.

there is no “normal” timetable for grieving

Grieving should not be rushed, however, grief for longer than 6 months would be considered severe and counseling would be recommended.


  1. Acknowledge your pain.

  2. Accept that grief can trigger many different and unexpected emotions.

  3. Understand that your grieving process will be unique to you.

  4. Seek out face-to-face support from people who care about you.

  5. Support yourself emotionally by taking care of yourself physically.
