Naturally, some think I can offer some words of encouragement and solace. Even if I had some, I think a better approach is to simply say this: go ahead and have yourself a good cry. Really let it out too. Don't be ashamed because crying is a natural part of experiencing grief and holding back only prolongs the inevitable. So turn on the tears and set it to high. If it helps, write a poem or song or long journal entry. Remember, you are the first line of defense on your mental health. You may have a lot to cry about. So cry then.
