Emotions of Grief


The “Stages” Of grief…

I do not like using the term “stages of grief”. It puts out this picture of things being linear in grief. It brings to mind that things need to be a certain way. In all reality, grief has so many emotions. Grief is a crazy roller coaster where you zip back and forth from emotion to emotion.

A lot of the emotions you have probably never felt before! They are painful, scary, and make you feel so alone. I made a cheat sheet of the emotions that come with grief, so you can know, that what you are feeling is normal. What you are feeling is part of your grief. You are feeling these emotions because you have lost someone you loved very dearly, and it’s okay to let yourself work through them. You can get the Emotions of Grief cheat sheet below! It’s completely free.
