"No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear." - C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed

You may be asking yourself how you can possibly move on with your life. Your world has changed, and this new reality is unbearable. Try to recognize that a big part of how you are feeling is fear. You may be afraid that you will never experience joy again, that you will never want to participate in activities that used to bring you pleasure, or that you will never connect to others as you once did. Be patient with yourself. The early days can feel unbearable...with each one as overwhelming as the one before. The process of grief takes time, perhaps longer than you might expect.

You do not need to feel afraid, because you are not alone. Others feel as you do. You may want to reach out to a support group in your area to talk with people who are also experiencing loss. You do not need to be frightened, because there are many people who feel as you do right now.

This grief support message was provided by Davie Burial & Cremation Services of Lexington.
