There’s no easy way around the grief when a beloved friend, family member or life partner passes away. Although everyone moves through the various stages of healing in their own time and their own way, taking a proactive and creative approach to the mourning process can often lessen the intense feelings of loss and helplessness.
Funerals are always difficult, even if they are the celebratory kind. They’re always seemingly uncomfortable, but know this: it's this way for everyone. Attending funerals isn't about you anyway, but about the benefits of the experience, if only you will allow it.
