First and foremost, I want to make sure that you understand that you are not alone. At the time being, that may not be a comforting feeling. You’ve lost someone incredibly important to you and it feels like the world is crashing down around you. I get it.
I may not be in your exact situation or know exactly what you’re feeling right now, but I’ve been there. Almost 11 years ago, I lost my grandmother. Though I was only nine years old, she was my best friend. She spoiled us endlessly. I remember countless nights when the grownups would go out and we would cuddle in bed watching movies and eating way too much junk food. This year will be the year that I have been without her longer than she was with me.
