Module 5 - Making sense of intense emotions
Chapter 4: Coping with your sadness
- Often sadness will hit you more deeply after the initial shock of loss wears off, and you realize how different your life is without the person who died.
- Like all emotions, sadness has lessons for us. It is helpful to remember that deep feelings of sadness generally lessen with time.
- If you ever think about ending your life, talk to your family doctor or a mental health professional, or call a 24-hour crisis hotline.
