How To Cope With The Loss Of A Pet

This is a contributed post, written by Laura Scott.

Losing a pet can be a really tough time for any family. When you get a pet, you bring them into your family. It doesn’t matter that they don’t look like you or even use the same language; losing them is very upsetting. If you’re struggling to cope with the loss of a pet, you’re not alone. You definitely shouldn’t feel silly about it. Here are some pointers to help you: Don’t Keep It To Yourself
Make sure you don’t keep what you’re feeling to yourself. If you’re not used to sharing your feelings, you should give it a go. Talking about the way you feel with your family members and friends will help you to get things off your chest. Bottling them up inside will only hurt you in the long run, so it’s best to talk about it now when you can.
Find Ways To Remember Them
Find nice ways to remember your pet. This should be a way you feel you can connect with your pet more. Maybe you would like to get an engraved plaque, or turn pet ashes into diamond jewelry. It’s totally up to you how you choose to pay your respects to your pet.

Let Your Feelings Out
If you feel like crying suddenly, cry. It’s always best to let your emotions out as and when you feel them to avoid having a huge breakdown later on. You’ll feel better for it.
Hold A Goodbye Ceremony For Them
Saying goodbye to your pet with your own funeral can make you feel like you’ve given them a good send off. You could even invite people who met your pet and say a few kind words. Don’t feel silly for doing this. Having a bit of a ritual can make it easier for you.
Share Good Memories
Make sure you remember the good times. Although you feel sad, remembering all of the times your pet has been happy and content will make you smile.
Speak To A Professional
If you’re really struggling with your feelings, don’t feel weird for needing to speak to a professional. Many people feel better for this. It’ll help you to stop blaming yourself and wondering what could have been. It can help you to feel better about a future without your pet.

Try A New Hobby
When a pet dies, it can make you feel as if you have no purpose. It can make you feel a bit lost, and like you have nothing to live for. Trying a new hobby will help you to feel better. You might even make new friends.
Take Care Of Yourself
Although it might be the last thing you feel like doing, taking care of yourself is important. It’ll make you feel better, and give you a more positive outlook. Never neglect yourself when grieving for a pet.

Hopefully these points help make it easier for you. Time heals all wounds, and everybody grieves differently, so just keep going. It’ll all be ok!
