Standing with Those in a Season of Grieving

As the quarantine days continue to unfold, many of us have experienced loss of loved ones that are just hard to explain. If you’ve recently experienced the loss of a loved one, today we stand with you while remembering our own dear friend who worked for the airline industry and was just 27 years old. It’s been about a month now since we last saw him, yet his memory is as close as if it had been today.
If you’re in a season where grieving is part of your own story, we want to say it’s ok if you feel sad, even a little lost for a while. Grieving is different for everyone, and with such uncertainty around us, there’s not just one “right” way to grieve. So if you’re grieving, from our own past lessons learned we encourage you to:
  • Take some time to listen to your heart. Acknowledge how you feel and be intentional in finding healthy actions and practices that ease your pain.

  • Know that you are not alone. Even though most of the USA is under quarantine, it doesn’t mean that you are cut-off from the world or forced to deal with your pain all by yourself. Reach out to people you trust. Be honest with your feelings, and both acknowledge and accept when you need help. People who truly love you will be happy to help you with specific needs.

  • Heal at your own pace. Allow yourself the space and grace to care for yourself both emotionally and physically, and know there’s no deadline for when you need to feel completely “normal” again.

    Though honoring a lost loved one looks a lot different these days, in hopes to bring a little comfort, we encourage you to share in the comments below about the loss of someone that you’re grieving. Though there’s distance between us, please know we’re keeping you close to our hearts ♥️
