πŸ’” Broken Heart

It broke my heart when my grandpa died, but I showed no sign of sadness. It's been over a year and I still miss him. When my dad told me and my sister that he died, I almost didn't believe him. And hearing people talk about it made me think about it even more. I loved my grandpa very much. I think about him all the time, some days only a little but sometimes a lot. He was a great guy, a veteran, a diabetic, an Italian, a wonderful grandfather. He and my grandma (the one that was his wife) were the grandparents I saw the most. Now it's only my widowed grandma. My other one is also a widow, but I never met her husband. He died long before my sister and I were born. I loved my grandfather though. Never did I tell anyone, but they probably assumed. For now I still have a broken heart every time I think about him. I don't know when my heart will be cured.

Broken Heart
by: Doreen UK

I am sorry for your loss of your grandfather. Grief is so hard to bear at any time, but for someone as young as you it is a difficult cross to bear. Perhaps you are just stuck in grief and unable to move forward. Seeing a grief counsellor can often help one move forward if there is a blockage in the way preventing you from grieving. It is not uncommon to think of your lost loved one some days and other days not feel anything. Grief comes and goes at different times even when we least expect this. You may even have triggers go off at times e.g. a favourite food your grandfather liked. or a movie, or a song etc. Just let the tears come and don't bottle this up. Grief is normal when you lose someone. It can't be forced. We are all wondering when our grief will be over as it can wear one out. But hold onto the belief that grief won't last forever. Take one day at a time and you will find yourself able to move forward better. Crying is a large part of grief and is healthy to express this emotion and these feelings. Your broken heart will mend with time.
