Losing a loved one is something none of us know how to cope with. There is no instruction manual, no one right way to grieve. Some individuals feel symptoms of depression, while others feel numb. You may go through an entire range of emotions in a short span of time, which can be overwhelming.
Mourning the death of a loved one is difficult, and it can take a long time before you move on, but you will be able to move on. Most advice will tell you that “moving on” is more of a metaphorical goal. You have to get past the bereavement period in your own head. While this is certainly true, it’s wrong to think that moving on cannot also be a physical way to cope.
It’s not always easy to think of enjoying your life when you’re struggling to get through another day sober, but you should. Finding moments of peace and happiness is a crucial step in the process of personal reinvention, and now’s the time to take it, with summer bringing plenty of warm weather and clear skies to lift your spirits.
