People react in different ways to loss. Anxiety and helplessness often come first. Anger is also common, including feeling angry at someone who has died for "leaving you behind". Sadness often comes later. Feelings like these are a natural part of the grieving process. Knowing that they are common may help them seem more normal.
It's also important to know that they will pass. Some people take a lot longer thanothers to recover. Some need help from a counsellor, a therapist or their GP. But you will eventually come to terms with your loss, and the intense feelings will subside. There's no instant fix.
Talking is often a good way to soothe painful emotions. Talking to a friend, family member, health professional or counsellor can begin the healing process. You could also contact childline CLICK HERE
