    People deal with grief in different ways.
    Some people clam up and never talk about it.
    Others just wallow in the sadness and can’t return to "normal".

    It’s best to deal with the grief in whichever ways feel most comfortable to you. If it’s talking, crying, listening to music, writing, etc. then it’s what you should do. There really is no right way to deal with grief.

    And yet there are also certain things that one should not do like:
    clam up and never talk about it; trying to ignore it in the hope it will go away. This outlet hurts a lot especially over time. It can become to difficult to heal and can taint a lot of later experiences in life.

    Lashing out at others in confusion and whatever feelings that can occur. It’s alright to be emotional as long as the emotions are kept under some control.

    Awww you poor thing.

    It takes time, let yourself grieve. Cry as much as you need to and never feel bad for talking about your cousin. Think of all the great times you had with your cousin.

    I am sorry for your loss x

    i use to cut, but please don’t do that. instead, i now write poems about it. and i take all my thoughts and put them on paper. i rhyme my words and try to distract myself. i alsp wear a rubber band on my wrist so that if i feel a bad though coming, i pull back on the rubber band and snap it against my skin so i relate bad thoughts with the hurt and sting of snapping th

    Best advice is try and talk about it when you’re ready. Death is one of the hardest things we have to deal with.

    I’m sorry you are having to deal with this loss.

    Grief is just a natural process that everyone has to go through at some point in their lives. There are several stages;

    Shock – When you find out about the loss.

    Denial – In a lot of cases, people won’t want to accept the truth.

    Anger – This may be at yourself, God for taking them away too soon, a 3rd party who was involved in an accident, for example.

    Sadness – Realising that you won’t see that person again and remembering all the times you spent together.

    All these stages are natural and it is important to go through them. Time is the greatest healer and I promise you will come out of this a stronger person and someone who will be able to take your experience and help others.

    God bless you.

    I feel so sorry for you. people grieve differently & at the moment you are still in shock because it is so tragic & sudden. If you want to cry then cry & if you want to yell & scream then do that too. Try not to hold your grief inside & if you know somebody you are close to & can talk to easily & comfortably then it would be a good idea to pour your heart out & cry to her/him.
