Dealing with a death in the family

Though we know that death is inevitable, when a member of the family dies we plunge into grief. The pain of a departure for ever is certainly severe. Words of consolation from others may have some soothing effect. Still, memories of the past keeps on making us feel uncomfortable. However, the fact is that one member of the family is no more. No one can forget those who passed away but, everyone has to move forward. First and foremost, we have to come out of the grief and fulfill the legal as well as religious formalities that are to be carried out following the demise of someone.

As mentioned before death is inevitable. It’s something that everyone has to face one day or the other. While there are a few that take up the responsibility of the family and try to overcome their grief given to all those things they have to take care of. Yet there are others who get into a phase of depression and give in to many addictions like smoking, drinking, taking drugs and so on. It’s understood that the void that has been created by your beloved is something that can’t be filled so easily but is it really not advisable to put your life at stake? So you think the other members of your family (may be your children or your parents or spouse) is happy looking at you in such a condition? Definitely not. Understand that you are giving them equal pain as you are undergoing, if not less.

Ask yourself a question and that is, if the person whom you have lost sees you in this condition would they be happy? What would they want you to do? How would they want you to be? Or let’s look at it this way, if they were in your place would you want them to brood and grieve and just get rid of their life? I’m sure you wouldn’t want them to spoil their life; rather you would want them to lead a happy life. In the same way even you would have to lead a life that would make them proud. While it’s understood that you can’t forget them, so keep them in your memories. Cherish the good times spent with them and live a life they always wanted you to live.

 

Apart from this if you would want to do something for them. If you want to honor them, then live their dreams. You would definitely know what they wanted from their life; try to fulfill those dreams and desires. This will not only help you overcome the pain of losing them but will also leave a good lasting memory regarding them that could be cherished throughout.
