Dealing with Grief and loss

10 Practical Ways To Cope With Grief - TLC

I know this is a video game site, and we all know what recently happened involving a former community member. I don't want to give that any more attention.

We have all suffered losses in our lives.

Loss of a loved one, loss of a friend. Close family members. Sudden and tragic, or from a prolonged illness. Even a relationship breaking up is a loss, sometimes the very worst kind.

I want you to know that there are people out there who can help you with your grief. A lot of people don't know how to grieve, and it eats them up inside.

It is not a shameful thing to seek counselling.

Some get it from Church, some get it from psychologists and professional counselors. There are free services available by phone, staffed by volunteers who have been in your shoes.

Grieving might be new to you, but not to humanity. We have been living and dying for thousands of years.

Reach out to somebody -- even me -- if you want somebody to talk to. It is am important first step.




While we work through our grief and anger, we can still be friends and play video games together.

    Regarding the recent tragic event, his older brother, who was his "hero", passed away years ago. It was obvious to me that he never got over his death. Maybe if he had reached out for help..

    Most likely true...

    Actually, within the comments in this commentary video, according to some of his family and close friends, the crime occured on the brothers anniversary of his own death. It could be true or speculative, so take it with a grain of salt.
