We have already covered what not to say to someone dealing with a loss on the Inscripture blog. However, this post may offer some valuable quotes that you can use to comfort yourself or someone else during a time of grieving. Losing someone close to you is never easy, and you should treat yourself kindly during the bereavement process.
The quotes in this post are focused on how to process grief when you have lost a person you love. However, there are many other causes, including pet loss or anticipatory grief.

How To Cope With Grief
Everyone experiences grief in their own way. Whether you prefer to grieve in private or with your friends and family, it is important to talk about death and find out who can help. No one needs to suffer on their own, and there will be someone who can help you during your times of need as you would support your friends if they needed you to comfort them. You can also arrange to celebrate the memories of a lost loved one in the most appropriate way for the person who is no longer with us.
If you want to show your love for someone grieving, we offer a variety of memory jewellery, including handwriting jewellery, pet memorial jewellery and ashes jewellery. Of course, you don’t need to shower people with gifts in an attempt to mask their grief. However, from the feedback we have received from our customers, personal memorial jewellery can help people feel close to their loved ones and remind them of the good memories they shared.
