What To Do When Someone Close Passes Away
When a husband or wife, mother or father, sibling, partner or other loved one passes away we experience one of the most difficult times of our lives. The finality of death brings with it a host of second-guessing, and we often find ourselves asking, “what could I have done differently?”
If you’ve lost someone close to you, it’s quite possible you’re experiencing a wide and sometimes strange array of emotions. Sadness and grief, of course, but usually also an odd mix of confusion, exhaustion, guilt, relief, frustration, anger and bewilderment are all common. You may find yourself chastising yourself for some of these feelings, as if you shouldn’t be feeling them.
