My inner teenager still grieves

by Anna

My Mom died many years ago when I was sixteen. Bluntly, it was a stupid unnecessary death. She died from pneumonia.
I am dealing with very intense psychotherapy to overcome many issues in my life, especially severe childhood abuse. I am finding that a part of my heart is occupied by a very depressed and grieving sixteen year old. Her sadness consumes me and I feel that if I cannot heal this part of me, then there is no hope for all of me. It is very hard work to step into a sixteen year old's broken heart and help that part of me heal.
One other thing - my Mom was 38 years old when she died. Now I am 38 years old. The anniversary is coming up in the next few months, and it is really bothering me. Oh well, I will get over it.
