I hope these help you too.
Losing a loved one is one of the worst things you will ever experience. It's an unbearable pain the sizzles through you like a fire in your chest.
Eventually with time, that pain will soon simmer, but it never really goes away. It's not easy, but with support, guidance, and a lot of tears, you will get through it.
Five years ago I lost my mother to breast cancer, and I was certain that would be the worst day of my life. Then three weeks ago I lost my father in a car accident, and I realized it wouldn't be the only one.
Losing both of my parents at only 25 years old has been rough. Knowing they won't be there to see me graduate college, get married, and have kids of my own is something I'm just going to have to deal with. But it's really fucking tough.
Every day is battle, just to get up, and go along with my day as if everything is fine. But luckily I have an amazing support system filled with family and friends that have been by my side through it all.
It may seem strange to speak to a "stranger" about all of your innermost feelings but let me tell you: It feels really good. Whether it's group counseling or one-on-one, just talk to someone can really relieve all the pent up anger raging inside you.
They're not there to judge you; you can vent, and scream, and cry, or be completely silent, and it's 100 percent OK.
Journaling is another great way to explore your feelings and let them out. When you're feeling alone or hopeless, just get out a journal and write it all down and you'll slowly start to feel calmer.
Getting through the loss of a loved one is a long journey, but life goes on, and you will grow from it and learn to live with it.
God sometimes takes us into troubled waters not to drown us but to cleanse us.
The only thing I know is this: I am full of wounds and still standing on my feet.
-But I think, maybe, there is some validity in accepting that a part of you went with the person who died, and a part of them stayed with you.
"After all, to the well organized mind, death is but the next great adventure."
Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it's overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.
-One step at a time, one foot in front of the other. I'm gonna get through this, one way or another.
You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.
Never. We never truly lose our loved ones. They accompany us; they don't disappear from our lives. We are merely in different rooms.
Life has to end, she said. Love doesn't.
When someone we love dies, the hardest part is not letting go of whom we have lost, it's finding the strength and courage to move forward without them.
The sun can break through the darkest cloud; love can brighten the gloomiest day.
I try not to miss you, but in the end, I still do.
"The very worst part of grief is that you can't control it. The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes. And let it go when we can."
The weight of loss may never go away but we learn how to carry it.
Life is a brief intermission between birth and death. Enjoy it.
