Hi,

I am so sorry for your loss. it's only been 2 weeks. Allow yourself time to grieve. There is no time limit. I would encourage you to either join a grief group in your local area or get a grief counseling. This has helped me.

Everyone grieves in their own way. No one can tell you when to stop. You will never get over the passing of your loved one, but in time you will get through it.

Meanwhile, take care of you. Take a long walk in the park or around your neighborhood. Treat yourself to something special. Plant a tree in her name or volunteer to help others..sometimes it helps us when we help others. But above all, take care of you. Remember, "Put the mask on yourself first" then try and help someone else.

It's been tough for me. It's been 4 years since my mom passed away, and 4 short months after she passed, my favorite (more like a little brother) nephew passed away suddenly. I am still grieving (from time to time). Sometimes I can remember them with a smile, but there are times I allow myself time to cry.

If anyone tells you to "just get over it," they are wrong and you may need to re-evaluate your friendship/relationship with that person.

There are definitely 5-7 stages of grief, and they don't come in no particular order. I am sending prayers your way. Stay strong. Peace be with you.

My faith in God and spending time with Him helpes me too.

Hugs to you.

Sincerely,

Lisa
