Grief comes in waves. One day you’re fine, the next you can barely breathe. The smallest thing can trigger a flood of emotions and memories, and it can be overwhelming. In my own grieving, I’m often tempted to withdraw into myself and hide from everyone else. But we can’t live in isolation. In my darkest season, it was a friend’s care and support that brought me out of hiding. It can be terrifying to let someone see you struggling, but healing comes from relying on one another. If you feel overwhelmed and weighed down by your grief, reach out to someone you trust. Let others walk with you, you don’t have to do it alone.
