How to cope

CLEO (Singapore) - - ADULTING -

This doesn’t mean you’re OK with the sit­u­a­tion, but you’ve ac­cepted the fact that they’re gone and that this will now be the norm that you’ll have to live with.

“It’s of­ten seen as the ‡inal stage of grief as, at this point, a per­son has come to terms with the changes in their life. But they may at times still feel an­gry or sad that their loved one is gone,” says Jes­sica. “Let friends and fam­ily know what you need. If you want to talk about what hap­pened over and over again to make sense of it, tell them. Peo­ple are of­ten afraid of mak­ing things worse, so they may keep quiet be­cause they don’t want to re­mind you of what hap­pened.”
