You don't have to go through this alone.
No one knows exactly what you're feeling, and no one can make your grief go away. It belongs to you alone. But that doesn't mean you have to go through it alone. You've likely heard there are normal stages of grieving, and that's true. For many, it helps to walk through those stages with an experienced guide, or others dealing with loss, or resources to light the way.
