The longer you live, the more loss you’ll have.
A friend of mine approached me recently asking for help to process her loss. She knew that I’d experienced some loss over the past few years, and that got me thinking about what the deaths in my life have taught me.
Losing my mom made me angry, because I had had all these plans and expectations for how she’d fit into the rest of my life… and once I let go of those things I was able to make sense of my path forward.
I was able to walk in confidence.
The one thing I can offer in advice to anyone struggling with impending loss or sudden death: take all the bad memories, and replace them with the memories you’re happy to think of. Don’t forget the past or repress trauma, rather remind yourself it’s okay to focus on the best of times and memories you treasure.
