How do I cope with the emotions caused by bereavement?
When a loved one dies, it may feel as though your life has changed forever, whatever the circumstances surrounding the death.
The loss of a friend or family member can be very difficult to come to terms with, and you may find that you go through a variety of emotions, and sometimes not even understand your own feelings.
Everybody deals with grief differently. Don't ever feel as though you should be feeling or acting a certain way. It's best to go with your own emotions, accept that this is the way you feel, and find ways to get through it.
There is no time limit on grief, it may take months, years or even longer to come to terms with your loss.
