Life is a wonderful journey and you can win and lose along the way, but one of the most tragic moments in life is undoubtedly the loss of your parents. Parents are often some of our most precious people in our lives, who have given us guidance, unconditional love and support from day one to day two. When they leave us, the world changes for good and for bad, not only for our children and grandchildren, but also for us.
Healing the wounds after losing a parent is a long and difficult process, but it is also one of the most rewarding experiences of your life.
Suddenly you feel like the only people who really got you are gone forever, and you feel lost and insecure about your lifestyle. It takes time to get back to work, but it gets harder and it feels like you have to work again.
You become more aware of the importance of the people around you and begin to appreciate your time more. You miss everything about your parents, even the little things, but now you realize how much they loved you and did for you. They won’t call you to tell you the news and you miss their voices.
You think about your parents and the memories you shared, but you also start to overlook the mistakes. You even notice that the things you hated about them are not as bad as you thought.
Your parents were the first to teach you how to celebrate life’s milestones, and you feel hollow. The holidays and special occasions can now bring melancholy and make you feel hollow, but the pain does not go away. You feel the grief and the time at family celebrations is not the same.
Time has changed and you have to change over time, but not in the same way as your parents did before.
When others complain about their stupid arguments with their parents, you get angry because you know that one day they will regret saying these things. The loss of a parent can strengthen the bond between siblings or drive you further apart. You will miss your parents until the last day, but you will learn all the secret details about them because it will show you who they were.
Your absence will always burden you, but it will not cause you greater pain than the loss of your mother or father, even when they are gone.
Spend some time creating memories that your children will keep in your shoes, and remember that you will always live on in their memories.
