Grief - How do I stop feeling so sad?

Gretchen Lawson: One of the main things to focus on, in dealing and processing our grief, is to actually feel our feelings. To feel sad, to feel anger. It's not very comfortable, and at times we want to jump out of our skin. But one of the ways that we are able to process grief, and in fact move on, is to actually sit in our feelings. It is really helpful to do this with another person, even maybe a grief counselor. Someone who is trained and knows the stages of grief. It can also be really helpful to seek a support group, where you're sitting in a room with other people who might be in different stages of grief, where you can hear stories of hope and healing, and know that while you feel really sad right now, you can have hope that that sadness will feel less and less intense over time.
