How to C.A.R.E. - Dealing With Loss

How to C.A.R.E. - Dealing With Loss

Christmas!?  Yes, once again it will be upon us. For many, the holidays can bring about a flood of emotion, especially if we have said good-bye to someone that we love recently.  

We would like to suggest this acronym for the "CARE" of those (and ourselves) who are missing someone dear to us:

C is for CELEBRATE.  Celebrate the life of that person by sharing stories, photos, and memories of time spent together - don't be afraid to cry - tears are a tribute!

A is for ANTICIPATION & AWARENESS.  Anticipate and be aware that there may (and most likely will) be a wide range of emotions during the Christmas season.

R is for REST & RELAX.  Be kind to yourself. 

E is for EXPRESS.  Don't be afraid to express your feelings.  Grief is tough and no two people do it the same.  It is as individual and unique as our own fingerprint.
