We all have many losses in a lifetime, it’s part of life. There are big losses and little ones and each one matters. Our feelings tell us how much we cared; and our good memories of what we have lost will help us in time.
The big losses can change us. Sometimes we need to stop ordinary life for a bit, because it’s a shock; and we may always feel sad when we think about it, and that’s okay.

Everyone has different ways of managing. When you think about times when you’ve felt loss, what has helped you? Let’s share ideas in the comments below.
