Don't grieve alone; 14,000 members and growing
I haven't posted here in awhile. The crushing grief that overwhelmed me for so long after my mom died has lifted into more of a grief fog. But some issues within my family have arisen over the past few days, and I'm having a really hard time. And my question is: Why the hell is everyone in such a hurry to "move on?" What is so terrible about being sad, about missing someone? Why is it "normal" to go on with your life like nothing happened, to forget about the past and keep moving forward? The most important person in my life is gone. The only home I've ever known is gone. What little family I have is pushing me away because they all want to "move on." My mom is dead. I won't let losing her destroy my life, but I won't act like she wasn't a part of it, either. She's a part of me, of everything that I do, every decision that I make. I talk to her daily. I'm reminded of her daily. And I wouldn't want it any other way. Why is that so damn terrible?
