Death of a loved one is the worst thing that can happen to anyone. It is synonymous with devastation. No matter what the cause of is you will never be ready for it. If you are one of those people who have experienced this then you know what I mean that each day the pain of grief and bereavement seems to deepen as the day moves on.
It cripples you inside and making you feel as if part of you has died inside too. Every day you feel that it doesnít get any better. You try surviving your day to day life but when the night breaks and you are alone in you room again, the loneliness and the bleakness of what lies ahead seem to overwhelm you.
Sometimes you feel that this pain will never leave at all. You sometimes feel that this nightmare of pain and grief will never end. Itís the first year death anniversary of your loved one and yet everything seems unreal still. As if you canít totally digest the fact that he or she is gone for a year now.
Somehow, you are relieved that you have survived a year without having your loved one but it doesnít make anything any better. The first annual death anniversary can be relieving but at the same time very painful because it reminded you of the day that you will never forget for the rest of your life.
Losing someone like a husband or wife is one milestone in your life that if not coped with properly you may not recover from the grief. So when the first year death anniversary comes and if you want to get over it with a sane mind, here are some few suggestions.
Face it and take advantage of the first year death anniversary in honoring and cherishing your loved one. Since taking sleeping pills and snoozing the whole day through is not a great idea at all then do something good out of it. Visiting your loved oneís grave is the best thing to do on the first year death anniversary.
Bringing flowers and candles to the grave can somehow help you pull through the day. If there is something on your mind speak it out as if your loved one is in front of you. Just believing that where ever your loved one is he or she is able to hear you out can somehow lessen your grief.
Pouring out your sentiments can be very helpful. If you feel like crying and sobbing away, do so. Another way of getting through the first year death anniversary is to start something useful and helpful to others out of your loved one passing away. For instance, if he or she died of cancer, starting a cancer awareness charity or foundation to help others suffering from the same kind of cancer or starting a support group for people like you who are grieving can be quite fulfilling.
The first year death anniversary need not to be a day of torture. To help you get through the first year death anniversary do something rewarding for others and finding a higher purpose is the best way of rally out your grief.
