It’s best if you talk about your loved one and the circumstances surrounding their death as much as possible. If you shut off from the world, it will only make matters worse for you emotionally. Talk to anyone who will listen. This can be family, friends, neighbors, doctors and other medical professionals.

You need to accept your feelings as much as possible after the death of a loved one. Accept that you will feel hurt, anger, sadness, disgust, doubt and many other emotions.

You are likely not the only person struggling with the loss of your loved one. Try to do your best in helping others around you cope with the loss too. This can go a long way in helping you recover.
