The holidays are usually a time for remembering -- remembering your childhood and the excitement you felt during the holidays, remembering favorite traditions like baking cookies, or remembering little gestures of kindness from others that made past holidays special. Many of us look forward to the holidays as a time to gather family and loved ones together in one place.
But if you've recently experienced a loss, you may be worried about being overwhelmed by memories of your loved one. Maybe you don't feel like celebrating or maybe you don't feel like gathering the family together for a big meal without your loved one there. You might feel guilty for not wanting to participate in normal traditions. If you're wondering how you're going to cope this holiday season, read our holiday hints.
We hope you find these tips helpful. Please remember to seek help from your Employee Assistance Program, a grief counselor or a bereavement specialist if you need it.
