I buried my grandma today. My grandparents and their house were such a huge part of my childhood and it's heartbreaking to think that I'll never see her again. The house feels so empty without her and I'm not sure what will happen to my grandpa after everyone goes home. Most of our family lives out of state now.
This is the first person I've ever lost, minus my other grandpa and great-grandma when I was very young. Who have you lost? How did you make peace?
I'm sorry for your loss, anon. We share very brief times with each other here on earth. Show kindness to those you love.
When I was young I lost my grandpa on my mom's side. I never knew my grandparents on my dad's side. I always felt off about it because once my sister gets married I'll be the last with my surname
86, but she took (phone text prediction wants to put shrooms here) very good care of her body and if it werent for cancer I think k she could have easily made 100. she just wanted to be around to see the grandchildren marry.
Sorry to hear it dude. Also sorry that anonymous newfags have to be edgy. Just lost a grandma this year as well, it's just weird how everything feels completely different after they're gone. It's like living in a separate reality. There's the reality that they were in and now you're in a new reality/paradigm if that makes sense. Probably not but whatever. Loss sucks.
Sorry for your loss OP. I lost my grandfather last year and still not really sure how to make peace. I realized he was the one keeping my family together. Now everyone is at each others' throats. He would be pretty disappointed in us all.
I’ve lost a lot of family, but their toxicity made me disown them all so by the time they died, I couldn’t give more than a shits about whether or not they were alive. Good riddance for bad rubbish
I've lost both of my parents, I'm an only child. My mom was a crack had piece of shit but I made my peace with her a month before she died on mother's day. My Dad was everything to me the only person I've ever truly felt was on my team no matter what. I'm proud of who I am and it's all because of the way he raised me by himself. There's not a say that goes by where I don't get anxiety over the what ifs or maybe I could haves. It hasn't gotten easier. I do know however that he wouldn't want me to suffer and I'm happy that he isn't suffering anymore either. Losing people is never easy anon. But it's something that becomes more frequent as you get older. Make sure to let the people in your life know that you love them while you can.
I am truly sorry for you and your family's loss, Anon. When we lose someone close to us it is never easy. Even if you somewhat, "see it coming," it's still hard to say goodbye. Something to remember is that this goodbye is not permanent. I bet your grandma is thinking about you right now and missing you just as much.
Without becoming too winded let me just say that there is more to this life once we die. I am not referring to heaven or hell either. You just keep going but in a different form. How do I know this? Let me just say I have been to the other side more than once through trauma and psychedelics.
There has been quite a bit of loss in my life over the years. If you are looking for some advice the best thing I can suggest is to allow yourself to feel whatever you are feeling. Everyone grieves in different ways and over different amounts of time. Avoid excessive drinking and hard drug use. Some beers and some weed can help sort some of the feelings you have now. Ultimately, it's good to just remember the good things about the person who has passed and how they impacted your life. Is there an activity you guys liked to do? Try and do that if you can. Get the family together for her favorite meal.
Just don't forget to laugh and enjoy yourself still. Your grandma wouldn't want you to worry.
