The loss of 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.

These losing both parents quotes will comfort you throughout the stages of grief.

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 could get worse than I thought.

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.

It's not easy, but with support, guidance, and a lot of tears, you will get through it.

Seeking help is major. I highly recommend reaching out to a therapist for counseling. Journaling is another great way to explore your feelings and let them out.

Getting over losing a loved one is a long journey, but life goes on, and you will grow from it and learn to live with it.
