Someone I Love Has Died
Sometimes, people we love die. This is a very difficult time, and you might experience lots of different emotions:
You might feel angry. Angry at the person for leaving you; angry with other people because they couldn’t help them.
You might feel sad. You might cry a lot and not be able to concentrate on other things except for missing that person.
You might feel numb. You might feel like you don’t really feel anything at all.
All of these feelings are perfectly normal, and everyone deals with someone they love dying differently. There is no wrong or right way to feel.
What can I do?
Some people find talking helps them. You might want to talk about the person who has died and what you loved about them. You might want to look at photographs and remember things that you did with them.
Some people find writing things down helps. You could write down your memories about the person or write down your feelings now. You could draw pictures of the person how you remember them.
Remember that you can always talk to your teacher if you want to.
