Tips on Handling The Grief of Infertility
Grief is often a part of life. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy. And no one grieves exactly the same way. Read through these thoughts to see if any resonate with you.
Don’t be afraid to grieve, and let your feelings run their course.
Remember that grief is complex. You might feel contradicting or confusing emotions.
There’s no normal timeframe. In fact, grief can circle back around once you feel like you’ve settled it.
Look for new hope. Grief is many things, but it is not permanent. Find some glimpses of sunlight in the rain.
Stay focused on the right things – whether it’s your faith, your relationships, or perhaps volunteering and giving back to others.
Remember that you can’t be in control. That’s just life.
You might feel pangs of loss much later in life, even if your family does eventually grow.
