Hi all, well I am back here again as it seems my grief has smacked me in the face again.
Invite that person to share some memories of your mother with you.Write down your own precious memories, each time they occur to you.This is creating a wave of emotion for me missing my mom, wishing she was here, and just feeling lost again.I truly want my dad to be happy, and I know my mom would too, and he has been terribly depressed and lonely.I am 36, so part of me feels like I shouldn't be so childish about this--however--they are an extremely insensitive twosome.
My father will not speak of my mom; it's as if she never existed! Is it wrong to fess up to him and tell him how upsetting I find all of this?See, for example, some of the links listed on this page on my Grief Healing website: Death That Brings Relief.In her bestselling book, Motherless Daughters: The Legacy of Loss, author Hope Edelman argues that a surviving father’s behavior in the wake of his wife’s death “matters [to a daughter] even more than we think,” in how it can influence a daughter’s long-term adaptation to the loss of her mother.Gather photographs and place them in a special album.Join Pinterest and make a board with pins that remind you of your mother.Has anybody been there and can relate to the conflicting emotions? I just wanted to add that he is saying he loves her to this girl and then lying about it to us.
