How To Move On After A Family Death.
|Philosophy : Thought Experiments|
First, talk to people. Never bottle your feelings up - let it all out! Even if it's only writing it down on paper, at least you're letting the feelings out.
Second, make sure that you don't neglect your life. Sure it feels like the end of the world when someone you love dies, but don't let it take over you. You'll only end up depressed and feeling suicidal.
Third, grieve. Believe me, it's horrid when someone you love dies, but you have to cry for them as often as you need to. Everyone moves on at a different rate, and just cos someone else takes, say, 3 weeks to get over a death doesn't mean you can't take 3 months or 3 years. One of my best friends died 2 years ago, and I still haven't stopped grieving for her.
Fourth, get out there and live! The person who's died wouldn't want you to sit indoors moping when you could be living life to the max! Sure, cry and scream first off, but after the first four weeks or so, get out and have fun! Yeah, you can cry at odd moments, but the main thing is to live your life the way you want, and not to let it pass you by. Remember, you only live once.
