Coping with grief is vital after the death of a loved one. People have many ways in which they experience and express these feelings of losing someone.

Coping with grief publicly may help a person in pain by getting a sense of comfort, security, and stability. Social media have become a means to share news of a loved one's death, offer condolences, and memorialize the deceased.

Many people encounter grief and find solace as they share their stories outside the family. Coping with grief and understanding how people heal in many ways is important. Though others may find it hard to share since individuals vary in behaviors and cultures.

 We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough. . . We never decide on our babies’ names until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before we leave the hospital. But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack. So he will always be Jack to us. Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever. . . To our Jack - I’m so sorry that the first few moments of your life were met with so many complications, that we couldn’t give you the home you needed to survive. We will always love you. . . Thank you to everyone who has been sending us positive energy, thoughts and prayers. We feel all of your love and truly appreciate you. . . We are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience. But everyday can’t be full of sunshine. On this darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it.

Chrissy wrote on her Instagram post," We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn't enough."

Her post was intimate that it gathered over 10 million "Likes." Individual comments on Teigen's post were more than half a million and counting. The slideshow pictures of black and white images capture how the couple went through their moments of grief.

People wrote words of comfort, and others also shared their personal experience of miscarriages and how they cope with it. However, there are also some who criticized the way Teigen chose to share the news and how she released pictures to the public.

Teigen and Legend's recent grief experience has now become a common discussion in the online community. A few mentioned that sharing grief in public is one way of healing the pain of loss. Others think that it is improper to share pictures and grieve in public at the same time.

Coping and living with grief is important

According to Mental Health America, a loss of a loved one is life's most stressful event and can cause a major emotional crisis. Any individual may experience a wide range of emotions after losing someone.

Reaching and seeking out caring people would he helpful. Relatives and friends are important to support and understand the emotions that people in grief go through.

Expressing thoughts and feelings is also vital. It is best to express pain from losing a loved one. Whatever the form of expression one could do to relieve the pain would be better than suppress the feeling.

Dr. Zimmerman tells Refinery about Chrissy Teigen's experience. "Everyone shares and grieves differently, but being open and sharing your story makes you realize how many others have been in the same or similar situations", she says.
