Whoever we are and whatever life stage we are at, there will be times when we have to say goodbye to people we love or care about. I’m not talking about a brief cheerio when someone goes on holiday or moves to another job in a nearby location.
What I’m talking about are those times when the goodbye, even if not final and forever is for a substantial period of time. As humans we are adaptable and even if the pain is acute, you will learn to cope, eventually. It might take longer than expected but as with a lot of situations there a few things you can do to make the situation a little easier.
First, remember that emotions are not good or bad they simply exist - the experience of losing someone or at least not seeing as much of them as you used to, can undoubtedly cause emotion.
