Dealing with loss in the family?
So I'm sure I'm not the only one who has lost a member of their family. Yesterday, I lost my favourite grandmother and I'm still reeling from it. It was really unexpected. We're flying over to England tonight to be with the rest of our family. But I was wondering...
How did / do you cope with losing a beloved member of the family? Whether it be a grandmother, or a sibling, or a father or mother. How did you deal with it? How did it affect you as a person? And how long did it take before a semblance of normalcy came back to your family?
I've never had to experience anything like this first hand until recently. In the last four weeks, five people (including myself) have lost family members. Two of my best friends lost their grandfathers, an old friend lost her grandmother, and my best friend lost her uncle. And now my grandmother, completely unexpectedly.
So how did / do you deal with it? I'm still trying to figure it all out..I feel like having a good support network helps, y'know?
