Learning that a loved one has a chronic illness is devastating, and even more so if that illness is likely to cut their life short. Everyone deals with the death of loved ones differently, the grieving process varies and there’s no wrong or right way to go about it. We’ve come up with a list of lessons we can take from mourning loved ones (based on information from the Huffington Post and helpguide.org).
Others May Grieve Differently Than You
Everyone handles death differently, so even members of your immediately family may react differently to the passing of your loved one. Some may want to talk a lot about that person, others may want to avoid the subject, some may cry a lot, others may appear incredibly stoic. We each need time to internally process what has happened and come to terms with the news in our own way.
