Losing someone close

When someone you are close to dies, dealing with how you feel can be very hard. It may be that your pet has died and this too can be very upsetting.

The sadness can take over everything in your life, but it’s normal to feel sad, angry, confused and hurt.

These feelings can be painful but they do get better with time. Crying is a really good way of letting the feelings out, or try drawing or writing them down. Don’t be afraid to talk about the person who died. This helps to remember them and helps the way you feel.

Let people know how sad you are feeling. When you share feelings they get better.

Remember if the person you first speak to does not help or does not believe you then speak to someone else.
