Advice for recovering from emotional pain

I recently gave this advice to a friend that was going through a particularly tough set of events including the loss of a family member. I thought I would share in case there is anyone else out there that could use this advice...

Go out and take a walk among the trees, talk to nature, water the flowers with your tears, exhale that pain.... and then take in a deep breath of life and remember that those who have loved us still live on in the way they have shaped our lives. Then smile and laugh because you get to take what you've become and use it to impact and shape others and you've already done that in so many wonderful ways. Just take a few moments to revel in the joy that is who you are.

...And then fart.  Because despite our best efforts we all contribute a little crap now and then.
