What are strategies you use to cope with the sadness and regret of your life? Everyone experiences grief and some people can go past it. Keeping yourself busy with productive, meaningful work and thinking of others seems to be the answer to grieving, but sometimes some grief is just too hard to get past for some people. Do you have any magic solutions?

Paula, Thank you for sharing that. I especially like the approach of simply accepting that I am one of those individuals where the grief is integral part of me. Constantly resisting what something is, takes more energy than accepting it Thank you!
I see you are able to understand this and I'm proud of you. There are more people like us than U can imagine. Existing day to day while carrying overwhelming grief. It becomes second nature. We are strong.
Very well put, Edward! Thank you!
LOL! I do think humor is a great way of coping (maybe punching yourself in the ribs - not so much!) You made me smile! Thanks, J
Sharon-Rose Vice, I did find a new counselor. (My old one didn't take Medicare and we lost our insurance when my husband retired. I'd be interested in a hub article about the foods. I'll have to check if you have one. Cheers and thank you!
Jagadees - I think the "going through" not "not going over" - a very nice image - Thank you!
Fahad, Thank you! very helpful...1. You're right. There are positives that came out of my experience. 2. I haven't written about the sadness in a personal way for a long time. After your suggestion, I think I'll do that., You're very kind.
