Home More advice Parents & Family
i know a lot about this. i had two really close family members die within 25 days of each other. its really hard for about the first week or too. all you can really do is stay strong and if you need too let out your sadness, depression, etc by crying. its is totally normal to mourn over someones death. most people mourn because of the thought that they wont be in your life any more. but just stay strong and keep your head up and think of all the positive things about that person. when both of my grandmas died i cried for about two months over both of them, and its almost been a year and to this day i still get teary eyed when i think about them. but go for runs and let out your tears, thats what helped me. i also talked to people a lot about it, like my parents.
hope i helped. and sorry about the death in your family. i'll be praying for you and your family.
Someones death is a big impact on their families lives, but you just have to accept the fact that it was their time to go, and move on, not saying forget, but just give yourself space, and try not to think about all of the sad times you're going to have without them, but think about all of the memories you have had, memories give you the strength to move on. Don't feel like you're alone, talk to your family whenever you feel down about it, and try and talk to friends about it. I'm sorry for your loss, and with time things will get better.. Things always get worse before they can get better, but eventually time will heal things, and you will start to feel better. Goodluck& again, I'm sorry for your loss.
All I can say is to try to be strong. Just try to realize its the way of life. Sometimes deaths in the family are even harder if we dont have time to prepare for them. Its not AS hard losing a grandparent when compared to losing someone much younger in a tragedy. I hope you will be able to get through this. I do know that as time goes on, it will get much easier.
Just try to focus on the positives. Remember the good things you experienced with the person. Im sure they want you to be happy and remember the happy times you shared. I hope this helps. Good luck! I will be praying for you and your family..
the first year is the most dreadful, because of holidays, birthdays and the awkwardness of figuring out how to celebrate something supposedly happy with the air of absence and sorrow hanging over it. people grieve at different rates and i feel it's wrong to try to put a timeline on healing. if you find that your grieving is truly interfering with your family friends or social life after a year, you probably need some help working through your sorrow. (books, videos, friends to talk to, ministers or therapists are all very helpful in situations like this.) sorry you have to go through this! =[
It really depends on how close you were to the person. But the best advice I can give is: don't be afraid to cry or reminisce. Sometimes it helps to look at pictures, or tell stories about the person, or just write down what you're feeling, or even do some of the things you used to do with the person. Maybe be proactive about the cause of death like if they died of cancer help raise awareness in your community... I'm praying for you, message me if you need to talk, becausetheairisreal
they're in a better place also. think about that. :)
