I just found out today that, my Grandpa is dying. I knew that it would be inevitable, but I didn't think it would be so soon. I don't think I can live without my Grandpa. He's always been there for me, he always told me he was an ear to vent to, a shoulder to cry on, and whenever you need a hug, he's giving away free hugs every day. He seemed to understand everything I was going through and he always has advice to give, I tell him everything and I have no other relatives that I am that close with. I just don't know what I'm going to do when he's gone.

I love you both unconditionally

Let go of the fear Let go of the doubt
Let go of the ones who try to put you down
You're gonna be fine Don't hold it inside
If you hurt right now, then let it all come out

I am so sorry to hear this. A few years ago, my grandpa had a bad fall and broke every bone in his back and neck. We thought he was going to die, and he almost did. We didn't lose him, but he has never been the same. I feel almost like we lost the spirit of him. We lost every thing he really is. I am very sorry to hear about this, and if you need anything feel free to PM or VM me.
Stay Beautiful<3

I'm not so great with advice. Could I interest you in a sarcastic comment instead?

Hey there,

I can understand how you are feeling. I am pretty close to my grandma too, so I understand how it feels to almost lose someone who is so close to you. I also lost my dad too, so I get it. My best advice for you is to spend as much time as you can with your grandpa while you can. It's natural to want to shut down in a time like this, but it's so important that you let your emotions out in a healthy way. Meaning, talk to someone about your grief and feelings. Talking can sometimes be the most difficult thing, but it's really helpful. When he does pass, make sure that your surrounded by family and friends. They can really help pull you through times like this. Also, healing takes time. It's going to hurt, I can promise you that. You're going to miss him. Some times will be harder to deal with than others, but it's all going to be okay. Take time and allow yourself to feel, and to grieve. then try to live your life to the fullest, as I am sure your grandpa would have wanted you to do that. You and your family are in my thoughts. I know it's hard, but hang in there. <3
