it was a long time ago, and i don't know how to feel now... - May 11th 2009, 09:28 PM

About four years ago, in the same year, I lost an Aunt D, Uncle F, Uncle M, the house i'd lived in my whole life, a mother b/c my parents got divorced and she moved far away, and three well-loved pets i killed from neglect (tho i was only 9 or 10-ish). Looking back, I was numb and scared, but I didn't grieve much. My dad thought i was depressed but i just got by for a few years. Looking back... I'm still sad and aching about all of them... Do I still need to grieve? i feel like i haven't honored them like they deserve or something ...


Why is it that so often, my friend, those who are extremely successful in virtually everything they do are so unable to see that this is the case?

Yeah, you might not be the right person to ask.

Everyone grieves differently. As children we may not really understand death, and so we may not cope with losses we face as children. When we begin to understand what death is, we also begin to understand that we may not have come to terms with our losses as well as we thought we had.

If you're still hurting over your losses, that's okay. Maybe talking about it would help you. Is there anyone in your life you can talk to? Have you considered therapy? Grief counseling can be very, very helpful.

Let me know if I can do anything for you. Take care.



Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us.
I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind
