Finding Peace Amidst Grief

I lost a loved one to a tragic accident last year and it has been incredibly difficult to cope with the aftermath. The feelings of guilt, sadness, and anxiety from the trauma have been overwhelming. I’ve been struggling with post traumatic stress and it’s been impacting every aspect of my life. I’ve been trying different coping mechanisms and therapy, but sometimes it feels like nothing is working. I’m hoping to find some support and advice from others who may have experienced something similar. I want to believe that there is a light at the end of this dark tunnel, and that it’s possible to find peace and healing amidst the grief. Thank you to anyone who is willing to share their own experiences or offer some words of encouragement.
