Grief - Is it wrong that I don't want to talk about my grief?

Gretchen Lawson: It can be really hard for family and friends to witness you grieving. They want to be helpful. They don't know what to do and you might not want them around. You might want to isolate and deal with your feelings on your own. That is normal in the grieving process. I would encourage you, allow your support system to love on you. Allow them to check in on you.

Tell them what you need. Be specific if you can. Let them know that it is so helpful to know that you are loved and cared for even in the midst of feeling sad, even in the midst of this loss.
