Carve Your Own Path
As a counselor, I worked with children mourning the loss of a parent. I learned that each child grieves in their own way. Some needed to talk about it. Others were able to physically express what they verbally could not. As you work through your own loss, be open to exploring different ways of healing. Sometimes the act of physically doing something can reconnect you to a vulnerable part of yourself. Painting, writing, and exercising are all healthy ways of coping that can help you to improve your mood and manage your grief.
