6 Practical Ways to Cope with Loss
"When we first lose a loved one, we can hardly put one foot in front of the other, let alone deal with all of the preparations, paperwork, and new responsibilities. Death breaks our hearts, unsettles our souls, and shakes the very Earth beneath our feet. It is impossible to plan or move beyond the day at hand when grief is fresh. After experiencing loss several times in my lifetime, the best advice I've heard on coping with death is to “take it one day at a time.” Don't expect too much of yourself in this season. Let grief take its due course.
Jesus tells us in Matthew 6:34, "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." This verse is a message of hope to calm our anxious thoughts, but it is also a guide on how to handle moving forward by taking it one day at a time. It is okay to live day to day when coping with the death of someone you loved dearly."
