Crying it out and let myself feel the pain and the sadness and not try to suppress because if i do so anger builds up. Also by surrounding myself with people who understand what i am going through

Forgiving and forgetting is the way to go. God loves us all and I should also love other people no matter how bad they treated me.

When I think of my family and friends who I have lost, I just talk about them a lot and cry over them and then I pray for the souls to rest in peace. I get better by doing that.
