The death of a child at any age, under any circumstance, is indeed the toughest experience a parent could face. The grief is all-consuming, and it can be difficult to live your everyday life. There is no right way to grieve, but there are some things that may help you to cope.
Find a support system
One major challenge is feeling alone, as though no one can understand what you’re going through. While every situation is unique, connecting with other parents who have lost a child can help you to create a support system who can truly relate to you. Spiritual Care Support Ministries can help you connect.
Leave the house
Getting out can be as simple as a short walk down the block or taking a drive to the grocery store or even the cemetery. Wherever you choose to go, being outside your house will allow you to get some fresh air and focus your energies and attention elsewhere. You can go by yourself, and you don’t have to talk to anyone – simply take the time to do what you need to do for you.
