Dealing with loss and grief on Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day can be difficult when you are grieving the loss of your mother, grandmother, your child or another important female figure missing from your life.

With all of the Mother’s Day promotions happening this week, feelings of grief and loss may surface. It’s okay to feel whatever you need to feel, and this is a normal part of the grieving process. You’re not alone in feeling this way – here are some stories of other people who have found Mother’s Day tough.

Although you may not feel like celebrating, significant days like Mother’s Day may be an opportunity to reflect and remember, and to take care of yourself.
