It is a good thing if people are around to give a grieving person love, support and consolation. But the only the all-powerful God, who became man in Jesus Christ and understands all our feelings, can give us human beings the deepest possible consolation. If you come to know this God, you can experience deep-seated comfort because He has promised us that “Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted.” (Matthew 5:4)
In your everyday life it is important not to go into your shell when grieving. Look for at least one person you can show your feelings to. It can be helpful to talk to other people who are grieving in a similar way to you. Grieving is a task that needs time. A clearly structured daily routine can give you support. Even though it is hurtful, it helps to allow your sorrow and strong feelings to come out. Take time for the grieving process, the time you need to come to terms with your loss.
Life is all about light and shadow, joy and sadness, even though grief is often hard to handle. It can be a help to preserve the good memories from the past while consciously opening up to what is new. That is a challenge, but a new perspective allows hope to grow along with the courage to face life again.
