I found out there was life after loosing my mom, though at the time it seemed the pain would last a life time. It seemed that i was a totally different person & would never be myself again has i had lost someone who taught me everything i knew, she was a part of me. But in time you do move forward, and below hopefully are some encouraging words, thoughts that may help you also.
How to carry on
How do you continue your life after losing a loved one?......it's a hard jaunt and you need to keep in mind that life is a journey and one big long test!
It seems like the world as come to an end, and even though you may have all the people in the world around you, it still feels like your alone.
You have lost someone who was your hero, best friend, loved one, and most of all someone to talk to.
But life goes on for everyone else, your world stands still..hoping to cling onto anything that will remind you of them, and although your stuck in this time warp, everyone carries on as normal, they start to forget, but you dont & feel if you start to carry on has normal then maybe you'll forget about them, moving on means life becoming normal again, which you may not be ready for.
It does get better with time...."Time is a great healer" not the pain/loss but how you cope with your feelings, how the pain doesn't cut you in two now its a dull ache. The memories aren't constant, but the quick reminders stun you and leave you in a trance remembering smells, jokes, songs you shared.
Remember there are two paths you can take in life, staying down & thinking what was or getting up & being a fighter for the family and friends that need you.... & it's up to you which path you take but remember....what would our loved ones who have passed wanted??
How lucky I am to have known someone who was so hard to say goodbye to.
We only part to meet again
A good-bye is never painful unless you're never going to say hello again.
After the 1st year you can start to put the 1st, Birthday, Christmas, Anniversary behind you, always remembering..............the memories are with you always and they play a key part in keeping a loved one alive in our hearts.
