    It is important that you learn to be resilient after a loss of a loved one. Sometimes, we just need to chill out by ourselves for a short time or spend time with happy people. Imagine a ball bouncing back up to you. Life should be just like that when a setback happens. Bounce back from negative events quickly.

    Hello Catz12,

    Thank you for the positive message. While grief and loss can be hard to process, life does indeed go on. For some people, it's not as easy as it is for others and the grieving process might take a little longer. There is no "right" timeframe to this. Yet I agree that as people, we are resilient and that everyone will pull through, sometimes with a little help.

    Hi Catz12,

    Thank you for sharing such positive words. Grief and loss can be undoubtedly hard to cope with, and it is so easy for us to put ourselves last in the process. In such difficult times, it is more important than ever to be taking care of ourselves. Your message is such an important reminder about the importance of self-care in helping us get through hard times.
