MYTH: The pain will go awayfaster if you ignore it.Fact:
Trying to ignore your painor keep it from surfacing will onlymake it worse in the long run.For real healing it is necessary toface your grief and actively dealwith it.
MYTH: It’s important to “bestrong” in the face of loss.
 Fact:
Feeling sad, frightened, orlonely is a normal reaction to
loss. Crying doesn’t mean youare weak. You don’t need to “protect” your family or friends
by putting on a brave front.Showing your true feelings canhelp them and you.
MYTH: If you don’t cry, itmeans you aren’t sorry for
the loss.Fact:
Crying is a normal re-
sponse to sadness, but it’s notthe only one. Those who don’t
cry may feel the pain just asdeeply as others. They maysimply have other ways of show-ing it.
MYTH: Grief should last abouta year.Fact:
There is no right or wrongtime frame for grief.
