The pain of losing someone you love can be unbearable. It can feel like a physical ache in your chest, or an emptiness that never goes away. You may feel overwhelmed with sadness and grief, and it can be hard to find the strength to keep going. You may feel angry, confused, and helpless as you try to make sense of what has happened. The pain of loss is real and it takes time to heal. It’s important to take care of yourself during this difficult time by reaching out for support from family and friends, talking to a therapist or counselor, or joining a support group.
