Many people go through the grieving process of losing a loved one without realizing that when life is not going right. They may feel the loss but their head isn’t spinning and they aren’t thinking about their death. The death of a loved one is like losing a part of your own personality and this is especially true if it is a person that you cared about or loved.
The funeral for your loved one should be the last thing on your mind on Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day or any other day for that matter. The truth is, many people are actually grieving when their loved one dies. If you are one of them, it is important to understand what your grief is and that it is normal. There are many types of grief and the grieving process will vary with each individual.
Grief will also change with age. If you are older, you may be more likely to experience depression or anxiety because your life will seem empty. The grief and anxiety can take over in a very short period of time and you will feel helpless and depressed. When your loved one dies, you need to realize that you need to grieve for what you lost and accept your loss.
