Healthy Grieving #6 - Find a Support Group

God created us to need others.  Grief doesn't change this.  Being by yourself while grieving can be very dangerous.  Don’t feel like you can or have to go through it alone.  Try to find a church or community grief support group.  We need encouragers! 

It is very important that you find those who has experienced something similar.  Unfortunately, those who haven't shared in your "kind" of grief don't understand.  They sometimes give some crazy advice simply because they don't understand.  People in a support group with similar situations will understand. 

Unsure of support groups available in your area?  Call a local church or hospital.  Pray that God will lead you to a group that can hold your hand as you travel the roads of grief.
