The People I have loved

In the past 5 months, I have known 3 people who have passed away. The first person was a kid who helped me get out of my depression a year before. The second was a person so very similar to me it was scary to think I could be her and commit suicide. The most recent person was my grandpa who acted like my second dad. He was the best person I have ever known. I feel like all the ones I really love are gone, and I am left with a cruel world (even though I know that's not the case, but I really feel that right now.) I just wish I had 1 of them back so I could deal with the other ones being gone.

The People I have loved
by: Doreen UK

I am sorry for all your losses. Often when we are in an emotionally hard place we feel that we have lost everyone that ever cared for us, and the one's left are not the one's you can connect with right now. Grief does this. It changes our perception of life and events. Depression is also a very difficult disease to live with. I suffered depression for 40yrs. and then went into counselling. This was the best decision I ever made. I dealt with all my life losses and grieved them and I started to get stronger and I am a totally different person today. I healed in ways I didn't think was possible. I thought my depression was just part of life and I had to put up with it. I have moved forward in ways where I related better and accept life for what it is. It is possible with good professional support to get ourselves into a more mentally healthy mind set where we will see life for what it is with some acceptance of those things we can't change and to change the things we can so we survive better. You sound like a young person who is struggling with it all. But along with age comes maturity and often what bothers us now will change with maturity.
Just don't keep everything bottled up. Talk to someone who can help you through life and work out things that trouble you. Death is such a very painful part of our existence. It is only Time that can give us release from this pain.

Sending a hug
by: New Jersey Girl

I wish there was a way for me to give you a form of comfort in what your feeling. I have lost a loved one and I often found certain statement irritating." It will get better" etc..But I think the best thing I can offer anyone or hope anyone can offer me is just comfort or just an ear to listen to how I feel..not their assumption of what I am feeling. To love in this life is such a beautiful experience and I can feel your pain as I allowed myself to experience the best love I think I will ever experience in my life. From this woman who happened to be called my mother. Stay strong and try not to let depression get to you and feed the thought of suicide. You are a great person, going through a turbulent time and like many others before you in even worse situation. You will survive.
