COPE Healing Tip of the Month
From COPE Clinical Director Amy Olshever, LCSW
The first year and beyond:
The first year of grief is often described by our culture as the hardest: the first special holiday without your loved one, the first birthday they aren’t here to celebrate, and so on. Unfortunately, the truth is that, because grief is so individual, for many of us it is the second year and beyond that continue to be difficult in different ways. The first year is the year that you are not alone in remembering that this is the first time you are without the one we lost. But in each subsequent year other people may be looking for you to have “moved on.” How you integrate your loss and find resolution with your grief is so personal. It is important to keep this in mind as you navigate the milestones and anniversaries and give yourself permission to grieve in your own time.
