A Part of Me Gone

by Julia

It has been six years since God called my grandmother home. She lost her battle with Dementia on January 17, 2008. I only got to experience 17 years of life with her. And I surely did enjoy the time we shared together. My grandmother was an amazing woman of God and a major influence in my life. She always made sure I kept my mind stayed on God, she always motivated me to do the right things, she always encouraged me and lifted me up when I was in despair, she always tried her hardest to hold the family together, and she taught me how to love. But when she died, it felt like a part of me had died. It was like my world was turned upside down. Even though it has been six years, there are times when I think of her and I just cry. I miss and love her very much.

Julia I am sorry for your loss of your grandmother. You may have been stuck in grief for those 6 yrs. being 17yrs. of age. Now you are maturing you will have different feelings and memories and so this may be just the start of your grieving process. Don't hold off your crying as this is where your healing will come from. You will start to feel better after each crying session and you will start to feel the healing process start. If you feel you are not moving forward then you will benefit from seeing a grief counsellor. You were young at the time of your grandmother's passing and wouldn't know how to feel and how to process your feelings at the time. The pain of grief is so unbearable at times it can be overwhelming. I know some people who have not grieved their losses after as much as 30yrs. But it is catching up now with some as grief does press for resolution. It is much harder and more painful dealing with emotions and feelings years later. But saying this grief is not something we can force, or make happen. It come's automatically. Grief is a process we must go through to find healing.
