How to cope with Christmas

  • Written by  Comment: Trevor & Don Burstow

COMMENT: Trevor and Don Burstow, directors of Burstows Funerals share how to grow through loss, particularly at Christmas time.

The Christmas season can be a long time for those who grieve. The time from when advertising commences, until decorations are at last put away, can sometimes seem like an eternity.

Christmas and other special occasions, may be times of intesnse sadness, loneliness and pain for those who have expereinced the loss of someone they love.

There is no simple way to cope with grief at special times, but it is possible to live through that difficult time and to come out the other side knowing that we coped better than we believed possible.

Burstows make availble an excellent booklet called How to Cope with Christmas, which addresses questions such as Why do I feel this way? Why does it seem more difficult to cope at Christmas and at other special times? What do we do when the pain will not go away?
