In the Grip of Sadness

Grief can feel like you are being crushed. You may look okay, but deep down you may feel like you can’t escape your own grasp of sadness. It’s easy to lose hope and look for negatives when you are sad however that grip of sadness can only remain with you for as long as it can hold you. How can you release its grip?

Some ideas: Try talking to a trusted friend or family member, or a favorite stuffed animal. Think of what you are grateful for. Go outside and take a walk and feel the weather on your skin.
