Let Others Know What You Need
It is a good idea to clearly communicate with caring friends and family what would be most helpful to you in your grief journey. They may need to be educated on what are common expressions of grief to provide optimal support.
Take a moment to consider: What would be helpful to hear right now? What do I not want to hear? What does support look like for me right now? Who might be able to offer that support?
Place a phone call to ask for something you need.
