5 Tips for Dealing With the Exile of a Loved One [Part 1] 1. Recognise the five stages of grief and mourning they say come with death. You still talk on the phone though. It’s weird. Roll with it. 2. Acquire sea-legs. The ground will pitch, shift and dissolve, in classrooms, shopping centres, interview rooms, and ferry ports. You might cry, but you won’t drown. 3. Memory loss. Don’t worry if you struggle to remember dates, large passages of time, or traumatic events clearly. It will come off as nonchalance. 4.Keep a diary. Or don’t. It could be used as incriminating evidence the next time the house is raided. Eventually, you will forget how to write. 5. Deal with anger. The constant hum of anger may be strange at first, but in time you will be able to recognise and isolate it. Let it collect like sediment in a kettle. Then turn it into something sharp. Heiba Lamara
