Hey Erika :]

I'm really sorry to hear about your grandpa. Naturally it's difficult to deal with things like this, losing someone close to you is always hard to deal with. But one of the positive things about all of this, is when you go through pain like this, you're not going through it alone. Is there anyone else in your family that were close with your grandpa that you talk to about all of this? It helps to have someone who is there to support you and who understands, maybe that could help you a bit. Also, I may not know you well, but I really don't think that your Grandpa would want you to be doing those things to yourself because of his death. The positive side out of his death is that he's in a better place now. The only person you need to worry about now is yourself, what you're going through, how to stay strong through this. All of these things should be your main focus. When you remember your grandpa, remember the good times you had with him, not the time you could have had. Remind yourself that your Grandpa would not want to see you hurting yourself like this, because of his death.

Through it all, you're a strong person, Erika. And you're going to be able to get through all of this.
I'm here if you ever need to talk Take care. x

A lonely soul in a land of broken hearts

Hey there, Erika.

I'm very sorry to hear about your grandpa. =( Losing a loved one is never easy and it sounds like your grandpa was a very important person to you. Although nothing can ease that pain and nothing can bring him back to you, I do hope you can find some comfort in the fact that he is at rest and nothing can hurt him.

I know that it is hard, to face the rest of our life without someone you love so dearly. With that in mind, Erika, never forget that the past is yours to keep forever; nothing and no one, not even death, can take your memories from you. And I think, in a way, our loved ones are always with us; although we cannot be with them, physically, there is nothing to say they cannot live on in our hearts forever.

Make sure to lean on and reach out to your family during these tough times. Chances are they understand where you are coming from and will want to be there for you in every way they can. Remember to take good care of yourself.

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
