Permission To Grieve Letterpress Card
A permission slip to grieve, in case you need it.
PERMISSION TO GRIEVE
YOU, lovely human, are hereby granted full and absolute permission to engage in any or all of the following activities and/or feelings, concurrently or in no apparent order and without advance warning, for an unrestricted amount of time:
Talk about it endlessly, or not at all.
Ugly cry in public, at work, with friends, in front of strangers.
Not be your “best self,” because it’s all too much.
Feel better (without feeling guilty about feeling better).
Still feel shitty (without feeling guilty about feeling shitty).
Laugh, preferably really hard.
Be angry - at the universe, bad drivers, self-checkout machines...
Not know what you want or feel.
Do whatever the fuck you want.*
SIGNED: someone who loves you to teeny bits, even when you’re sad and slightly unshowered
* Except face tattoos, please don’t get one. Unless you really, really want to.
In which case, I’ll go with you and hold your hand and tell you it looks great.

This is the single best card about grief that I have ever had the pleasure to both send and receive. While experiencing grief is far from pleasure, it was a bit of relief to both say and hear, it’s ok “not to be your best self because it is all too much.” This is the only sympathy card I’ll be sending from now on.
Really hits the nail on the head on how grief is.
A great way to let someone know that you are there for them through their times of loss and heartbreak.
Let's you know that however you are grieving, it's the right way, the okay way. And adds humor to a heart-rending situation.
Gets to the heart of what grief is about.
