“You have to figure out what makes you happy and helps you in those dark times”

Lottie says:

“Grief will come and go as different emotions every day. It’s hard enough dealing with grief itself let alone when you’re beating yourself up for it. It’s so important to look after yourself, whether that’s self-care or going for a long walk. It sounds simple, but you have to figure out what makes you happy and helps you in those dark times. 

“The best bit of advice I can give to someone who is grieving is to be kind to themselves. When my mum died, I was very shocked by the level of guilt I felt, particularly in those moments when I had a good day. As the years have passed and I’ve learned to deal with grief better, I’ve realised that allowing yourself to feel happy is really important and you need to celebrate those moments.”
