How do you know if you've grieved enough?

I've just suffered a loss in my close family, and I'm still feeling the effects of it (which I fully expect will carry on until through the next three weeks at least).

Very few of my friends are aware of this, as it mainly happens when I am on my own in my room. However, very few actually understand how I feel as they have never experienced it themselves.

Throughout this very hard time, I have had to remain strong for the sake of my mum, and then when I feel like having a little cry, I feel guilty for umleashing it on thse around me, although I know my housemates etc. are more than willing to support me.

Guess it's just me being daft. Silly Molloy.

    You're not being silly at all. Let it out hun, on your own, or with your friends. We all need to sometimes, grief is a really hard thing to deal with and there is no right or wrong way to go about it. You shoudn't feel guilty and you don't need to put a time limit on appropriate lengths of time before you should stop grieving. big hugs

    I was in the same situation at the start of the year. There's no words people can say that make it better. Keep strong, if not for yourself then for your mother.

    Dont feel guilty. Its better to grieve than try and bottle it all up for sometime later when you least expect it or need it.

    Try and be open about it, and talk to people. Maybe someone whos slightly removed from it all so you dont feel like you're burdening those closest to you.

    Thanks for all your comments of support, guys. It is a difficult time but I guess it'll be alright in the end.
