I really haven’t been at peace with the loss of my loved one. There are specific reasons why and they really make me extremely sad. I have heard spirits see things differently when they reach the other side. I feel my loved one doesn’t look at me the same way as they did when they were here as my family. I don’t feel like I’m special to my loved one anymore in that sense. I feel like they have all this knowledge and aren’t who they were when on earth as my family anymore, and also look at their life with my family and I as something small. This makes me so sad and emotional at times. Like they are so different now.
I’ve had such bad days emotionally with all these thoughts and it’s so hard to ease the grieving process. I know I’ll never be the same. I’m hoping you have encountered similar feelings with clients and you can offer me any words or advice. I’d really appreciate it so very much.
I’m very sorry for your loss. The things you are feeling are normal. Feeling left behind is part of the process of that so many go through during grief. Let me reassure you that one million percent of the love you and your loved one shared is eternal. That means unconditional, forever. There is nothing that could make you any less special than you are and will always be to them.
Feeling abandoned or alone during grief is natural. Feeling like things have changed forever is truthful. Feeling like you will never be the same is honest. Please do not be afraid to seek additional help in getting through this, whether it’s participating in a grief support group, some private counseling, or using some Bach Flower Essences like Rescue Remedy, Star of Bethlehem, Gorse, Walnut. I am keeping you in my prayers Anthony. Be gentle with yourself.
