Most of us always liken death with a monster that comes to snatch away people that we love and at the same time in a mysterious way that no one can explain. Then when I was going about my online reading, I came across a lady lost her only son and coming up to terms with this painful loss was quite challenging to her. But I admired the strength in her to really open up and share her experience. She had a blog where she shared her life with her son and even after his demise.
It was a painful loss that marked the beginning of a difficult path for her but she didn’t allow this to make her go down. First she put it clear that no amount of consoling or comforting words can make anyone feel better when death comes striking. Even if you tell anyone that you can understand their pain yet you have never lost a child.
Then friends will even tell you that there are there for you and you can call them when you feel you need anything. But the truth is they will only stick around for a short time leaving you alone in this shadow of sorrow. She knew that she is the one who was experiencing the pain and so could not understand some people telling her that she would overcome the grief in no time. And for sure there are people who mourn such a loss for years and I think it’s unfair for anyone to think that you will definitely be able to go easily about it.
Its true death can destabilize anyone mentally and if not ready and strong on how to accept and move on, this can definitely negatively affect one’s life. You will mourn but not all the days of your life because it can be a bad moment in your life but you still have hopes of also having betters days.
