“We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.” ~Kenji Miyazawa
- Talk out your feelings and emotions. Express yourself: I’m mad! I’m angry! I’m hurt! I’m confused, I’m…whatever you may be feeling at the moment. Talk with a parent, friend, a teacher, a sibling, a neighbor, cousin, or anyone that you feel comfortable with. If you cannot think of anyone, seek a counselor/psychologist in your local area, school, etc.… They are confidential and will help guide you through your troubled time.
- Make sure to express yourself freely with your grief…cry when you need, it is completely healthy to let out a “good cry.”
- Try and keep a normal sleep routine. Good rest allows you to have energy to keep you busy!
- Keep up with your hobbies and remain sociable. Spending time with friends and loved ones is a healthy way to take your mind of thinking about it too much.
- Accepting it will take time—just allow yourself to open up to accepting it.
- If you feel yourself slipping into an unusual, unhealthy routine, make sure to tell someone about it and/or seek help.
~Believe in yourself and you can create what you want!
