Maybe you need catharsis or maybe you just need a way to connect with joy rather than sadness when you think of them. It might be something you do once and never again or it might become an annual tradition. Maybe it’s a very private, intimate thing or maybe it’s surrounded by your most important support people. Maybe it’s something you even do publicly with the intent of connecting with others to heal together.
The point is, there are so many ways to do it and there’s no timeline for this. When you’re ready, I want to encourage you to find a way that feels good to you.
