How to cope
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.”
