Do you think that the lost of a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences a person will have to face? I think that it is a very difficult trial. I lost my father when I was a teen and it was one of the most difficult times in my life. There are new and different trials that I face but I would say that was the most difficult.

yes, losing our dear ones is most difficult experience. I also lost my father in my teen and faced many hardships. I would not recover from the experience for many days and slowly become habituated the circumstaces.

I wouldn't say it is THE hardest thing, but it is definitely one of the top. It just depends on the situation. In some situations, it could be a blessing. I believe everything happens for a reason which makes hard situations a lot more bearable. I think of the hard situations as the ones we learn the most from and make us stronger people.

Losing a loved one will always be a painful moment because we've grown attached to it. The only way to prevent it from hurting too much is to not get too attached. I've been trying that recently because I know that my grandma's time will come soon. The more I can lessen the pain, the less it will hurt me, and the faster I can get over it and move on. Life is only temporary, afterall.
