A trouble shared is a trouble halved
by: Betty from Grief and Sympathy

The human species is a social being, from pre-school to college or work days, friends to confide in have been part of most of our lives. The timeless saying “a trouble shared is a trouble halved” has never been truer than when you're grieving following a death or separation. If you are now alone after years of company, the need to talk to someone is essential. It is also very important to choose carefully the friends you want to confide in.

Enjoy other conversations with acquaintances and neighbours and keep your problem talks to your special friends or close family member. If you are feeling low or have a problem some one else looking at it with you can really help. It may put things into perspective and add a new dimension. The more you talk about your loss the easier it is to move to acceptance. People do want to help when you are feeling low. No one knows how you feel unless you tell them. An outpouring of grief whether tears or talking is healing and an important part of the pathways we're going along.

Read some of our other pages about Dealing with Grief and the Emotions of Grief, and if you have trouble finding someone comforting to talk to perhaps consider looking for a grief support group or counsellor.
