Losing someone you love is a devastating experience. It is a feeling that you could never overcome. It’s nights of heartache, pain, crying. No matter what and how people try to comfort you, there is no way that feeling will just disappear. This is the time we need GOD the most in our life, when we are going through sadness such as this. It’s hard to imagine the love you shared and years spent with the people or the person in ur life and one day, they are just erased from your life forever.
The memories are there, but you feel like just having one more memory with them that could satisfy your feeling. Sometimes we hide our feelings in the aftermath, but it’s good to let it out, speak about it, keep yourself occupied, cry it out. If you prolong the feelings, then eventually it would end up taking a toll in your life. You would become depressed, angry all the time, suffer from anxiety, you can even start using drugs and alcohol. Simply having someone to listen to you, can help you work through your pain. Choose that one person that you can be open too and express your feelings to them. They may not be a good adviser but they can be a good listener. You need comfort and support from someone. They may not have the words to comfort you but a hug of comfort will surely work.
Reminders of that person always pops up. It’s obvious on birthdays, holidays and family get together’s. An anniversary of the person’s death can be extremely painful. Just remember its good to let out the feelings, instead of bundleing up. It’s good to experience these feelings. Remember that you have your life to live, you have responsibilities, and you love yourself. So be mindful of not stressing out yourself to much, because it can affect your health and wellbeing. If you know a particular day is approuching that would remind you of the person and you know for sure that you cannot handle the hurt and pain, find something to do on that day that would keep you occupied, distract yourself.
Nothing can prepare us for losing a loved one, weather death occurs from a sudden accident or an illness, it catches us off guard most times. Nothing can emotionally prepare us for its arrival. With every death there is a loss and with every loss there is grief. If you cannot handle the pain alone, get some help. A therapist, join a support group.
