Dealing with sadness and grief can feel overwhelming, but there are answers. Here are 10 Healing Sadness and Grief tips you may find helpful and healing. I have always found great comfort in this quote: “It is better to have loved and lost than to have not loved at all.”

Tip #1 - Our experience on earth includes the inevitable passing of loved ones and friends, as well as the ups and downs of career, business, family and life. The more we learn about the process of grief, the more we are able to understand that what we are feeling is normal..

Tip #2 - Do not feel ashamed of your sadness and grief by trying to contain or hide it. Tears are meant to cleanse and relieve. Cry out your pain. Pray out your grief. Peace will come.

Tip #3 - For your own healing, continue on with a life of activities as before. Or you may consider finally doing what you have wanted to do for years. If you have lost a loved one, know he or she would want you to carry on. Whether here or there, he or she really wants what is best for you.

Tip #4 - Refrain from saying you have “lost” your loved one. A line of poetry says, “Love cannot lose itself.” You have not lost. Rather, your loved one is living in a new dimension, yet still close to you.

Tip #5 - You can ask loved ones who have passed to continue being with you through your prayers, dreams or signs only the two of you would know. Even friends of mine who have not believed this was possible, once a loved one transitions, tell me it is very real.
