My great grandmother passed away 2 years ago and I am so depressed over it. Everytime I think of her I cry and it hurts to think of any of the memories. My family refuses to even talk about her and I don’t know what to do.
Hey There Luke!!
It’s normal to feel the grief even so long after the passing of a loved one. They often say that the later years can even be worse as numbness and shock wear off. My advice, mainly from Experience, is to talk about her in the best possible light. With friends or a grief counsellor if your family won’t. Writing letters to her will also be a great relief and outlet to this pain. Tell her what you wish you could, thoughts and feelings and all of those things. And remember it’s okay to cry!! It’s a horrible thing to lose someone you love, and you’re allowed to be upset. And to still be hurting. You’re strong, even when you don’t feel it. - Rae
