Insight: Grief is difficult to navigate. First and foremost, allow yourself the space to grieve. Even if it is a few minutes each day. If you hold these deep emotions in it only causes more pain in the long run. Emotions that are bottled up only fester, it is important to express these emotions.
Issue: I lost my favorite stuffed toy. I have tried to find it everywhere but it was nowhere to be found. I want it back!
Insight: I know it is difficult when you lose something that means that much to you. It is alright to be sad over your loss. If you have done everything you can to get your toy back, and your parents have also tried but have not succeeded then it may be time to replace it with a new one. I know the new one cannot take the place of the old one, however it could help you get through until you find the stuffed toy or it could become just as important to you one day.
I strive to help others by being a safe place for others to ask questions and pose issues they face.
