Many people find journaling to be a therapeutic outlet while they are grieving. It allows them to write down how they are feeling, and not have their feelings judged or receive advice from others. Below are some ideas to get you started journaling. 

  • My favorite memory is...
  • I will miss_________ the most...
  • I wish I had...
  • I will honor and remember you by..
  • I'm sorry that...
  • I'm angry that...
  • Since you've been gone...
  • I wish I had asked you...

Some people are not comfortable journaling and prefer talking out loud to their loved one while in the car, at the cemetery, or to their loved one's picture.
