"Each person's grief is as unique as their fingerprint. But what everyone has in common is that no matter how they grieve, they share a need for their grief to be witnessed. That doesn't mean needing someone to try to lessen it or reframe it for them. The need is for someone to be fully present to the magnitude of their loss without trying to point out the silver lining."
Signs seeking grief support may be beneficial:
You just need someone to talk to about your loved one or your pain
You're crying more often than not
You're having difficulty functioning at work, in school, or in parenting
The grieving process feels overwhelming, intense, or prolonged, lasting for an extended period without any improvement.
You're finding yourself isolating from family and friends
You're experiencing sleep issues that are making it difficult to function
You're finding it challenging to express your emotions
You are experiencing excessive guilt
