Unhappy She was my sister, best friend and cousin. - August 11th 2014, 03:42 PM

Last year on the week before my birthday and a few days prior to my older sisters, our family was hit with a traumatic loss. My older cousin, whom was on 15 at the time was walking home from a party and stumbled on uneven ground and collided with a truck. The gruesome details of her incident report will never be itched from my mind. I know it sounds so stupid, but I'd never knew I would have to go through with this kind of grief and loss. She was the most alive, vibrant, bright, intelligent, kind, charming, gorgeous person I've ever met in my life. I grew up with her. It's still so hard to come to the conclusion that she is really gone, never to accomplish her hopes and dream, get married, have kids, graduate. It's hard to process that death is supposedly a 'normal' part of life, but I don't think Ill ever want to live through or I don't think I could handle loosing anyone else, as our family is such a close knit family. But our limits have been pressed, we've been through hell with the bullying of my cousins sisters and her mothers mental stability. It takes a toll on all of us, emotionally, physically and mentally.

She was my sister, best friend and cousin. Forever she'll be in my hearts and thought, until time will tell. <3 <3

Hey,

I'm so sorry for what you've been through, it sounds horrific

Death is a process of life, that doesn't make it easy, especially when it is as unexpected as your cousin's. But remember all the good times you've had, it's okay to be upset and to grieve, surround yourself with your family and the people you love and talk about how you're feeling.

She sounded like a lovely girl and it was way too early for her to leave. But I'm sure that she is still with you in your heart, and so you need to stay strong for her and make her proud!

I lost my good friend to a horrific way in April, the day before my birthday and yes it is so so hard I miss her so much but if you have a favourite memory associated with a song or a favourite singer or hobby which was the same as your cousin listen to it and remember the good times you had.

PM me if you need to talk, hang in there

I am so sorry for your loss.
Remember she would want you to be happy, and live your life the fullest. There are many things you could do to remember her, do something she loved to do, go do something you two would do together. Sometimes it does help.
