Back to Help & Advice index
If you have lost your mother or father then dealing with the grief and
getting through this tragic time with someone by your side is essential,
while the majority of time it is your spouse or partner that can help
you get through it could also be a brother or sister or other close family
member. Whoever is there by your side to help get you through this time
will find it hard and it is important that they as well as you understand
the grieving process.
During this time the loss of your loved one will feel like agony and you
may feel as though your whole world has fallen apart. The first couple
of weeks or even months will be the hardest part and as a couple you will
have to be very understanding and supportive of your partner and their
feelings while dealing with the loss yourself.
There are many different stages to the grieving process and these usually
follow on one from the other, the first feelings to hit those left behind
are disbelief and shock. These feelings will even be present if the death
was to be expected, say in the case of someone being ill for any period
if time, it doesnt however detract from feelings of disbelief that
your loved one has finally passed away.
The feeling of shock then turns to yearning and anxiety, this means simply
that you are missing the person being in your life and thoughts are turning
to how you are going to manage and cope with them not being in your life
Feelings of anger then come into play, anger at God for letting this happen
and taking your loved one, anger at the world around you and others who
still have their parents with them and perhaps dont appreciate them
and even anger focused at the person who passed away for leaving you.
These are all natural and normal feelings associated with losing a loved
Finally intense sadness and getting on with your life the best way you
can will crop up, intense sadness can last for a very long period of time
although usually it will lessen with time. It is not unnatural for the
person to feel like crying and indeed break out into tears at the very
slightest thing, this could be a thought or memory or something as simple
as hearing a song on the radio or at your loved ones favourite time of
the day. Again these are all natural thoughts and feelings which you should
just accept and let go. Eventually time passes and while you never forget
about your loved one you do carry on with your life and eventually find
you are smiling and enjoying life again.
