Fundamentally, bereavement is sadly something we all are going to experience in our lives at some point. It is a unique experience for everyone and we all deal with it in different ways.
Losing someone we love when they die can be one of the most difficult things that you will ever go through, and at that time you can almost feel like you are literally ‘losing your mind’.
One moment you can feel angry that your loved one has left you…..then in the next moment you can be blaming yourself for not physically dragging them to the Dr’s against their will.
What if we hadn’t gone on that journey?
Why did we have those pointless, stupid arguments?
The sound of a particular song sends you into uncontrollable tears in the middle of a store.
You have days when you physically cannot get out of bed.
You don’t have the will to take a shower.
You can’t move their cup from where they left it that day.
Begging for just 2 minutes with them.
What is the purpose anymore?
There seems no way out of this empty, big, dark hole…..
Yes, this can be the harsh reality of grief.
If there is one thing that will help you through this, …..it is to talk.
Talk to friends, talk to family, talk to a counsellor.
