It's always hard when you lose someone close to you. My friend passed away this week and her visitation is tonight. I feel like when the death first happens, you go through a shock phase. I also tend to be a little quieter and more socially awkward than normal near the beginning. I almost feel bad for anyone who runs into me during this week because the conversation may fall a little short.
One thing I do to cope with the loss is to just randomly smile. Sounds silly, I know. But just smiling makes me feel a bit happier. And I try and smile at everyone I see too because their smile back really helps too! I also make sure not to keep any feelings inside. I seek comfort in family and friends and give comfort to them as well. A support group is the best during a time like this.
How do you cope with the loss of a loved one?
