The Thing about Death

I have been going through so much the past few days.

My grandma died 3 am January, 25th, 2016, her funeral is on April 2nd. I miss her a lot but, I am happy she can be in peace rather than laying in a hospice room on life support. Up in heaven resting surrounded by angels and people who love her. One day I will be able to have endless conversations with her while I am up there.

Death, it's an uncomfortable topic for many young girls, but we need to start talking about it. I am sure each one of you have had some encounter with death whether it be a family member or a loved pet, indirect or not we have all dealt with something similar. We all need to talk about it, in this world and century it is often not talked about. Considered a topic "adults" but if we want to be understanding people shouldn't we talk about it too? Yes, We should.

Welcome to the new therapeutic death series on my blog. I am doing this for all of you who want to have serious conversations about death openly but also for my self to sort out my thoughts. To help me cope with grieving for all the loved ones, I miss.

Death brings everyone together. It reunites the members of the family that are the farthest apart. 

When someone in the family passes everyone flies to where they are, they all get together to spend time grieving with family who understand exactly what they are going through.

My dad is one of the people who knows what I am feeling but unfortunately he doesn't want to talk to me about his feeling. The night before my grandma passed we were talking about all the good memories she left us with and the thing she showed us to do before she passed:
She showed us to be strong. She held on to life for 36 HOURS! She showed us that you need to be STRONG IN LIFE. That's something I am so thankful for.

Point is that you need to be around family and look for all the positives you an. Forget about the fact that their body is in a hole REMEMBER that their soul is FREE.

Much love,
Vanessa

  3. I'm terribly sorry for your loss Vanessa. I lost my great grandma recently, and although I didn't know her that well, it really brought my family together in a time of despair. I think we can all learn from death. One of the last things that she said was 'I'm not afraid to die. And you all shouldn't be either.' And I think she's right.

    If you ever need any support Vanessa, we're here <3

    1. Thank you Noor, I really wish I could give you a hug right now. Losing people who you love is hard, doesn't even have to be by death, could be that they moved or don't talk to you. I hope grieving on my blog will help you as much as it helps me.

  4. I'm sorry to hear about what you have been going through Vanessa. No one should have to deal with what you are going through as it is hard in so many ways. I can remember losing my Grandad when I was only 8 years old I think the only thing that hurt me the most was not remembering much about him but only from what my parents told me. To this day I wish I saw him more but it has taught me that life can be too short and we can power through it. Death can be fearful but as you have witnessed it can bring people together even through its most saddest points.

    I'm here for you if you ever need to talk.
