Have you ever lost someone?

For any reason. Did you grieve and mourn that loss, or did you just try to ignore it and move on? Do you ever really get over something like that? So many people say that it gets easier but the truth is that it doesnt, you just learn how not to think about it. I lost four friends when I was in high school. Two to suicide and two to a weather related car accident. It has been four and five years ago now and still I dont think I've ever fully gotten over it. I pray that I never go through that again but with my fiance in Iraq I'd be lying if I said I wasnt scared to death every single day. What are some of the ways other people have dealt with this kind of thing?

Its hard to lose someone we love dearly and its normal for us to grieve..There isnt a time line for grieving either.Some take years.Though we never get over losing some on we do learn to move on. I think we are blessed with our memories in many ways. When we are missing them so, we can pull them out from our hearts and feel close to them once again. I will say that because of my faith,it has brought me alot of comfort because Iam not saying goodbye to those I have lost,Iam saying: I will see you later".What a joy that will be too.To know that we will reunite and never have to say goodbye again

Faith is definitely something that gets a lot of people through a lot of really difficult times.

It's difficult to get over it when you kept thinking about it. Me even I want to forget but somehow I miss that person so much. I wish I could just alter things but no matter how much we miss them, we can't just change the fact, that maybe if we stay too much in the past, our dreams would fall into the past. Try to do many things you love and avoid being alone. It keeps you from all the pain in your heart.

sometimes being around people doesnt do anything but make it worse. So many people always asking if you're okay , how you're feeling, telling you they know how you feel and what you're going through. For a while all i wanted was to be alone. Over time I got passed that but sometimes just remembering losing my friends is very difficult.That pain will always be there

pressuring someone is never a good idea. Unfortunately many do it. I'm sure I have as well. By the way you speak it makes me wonder, is this woman still living? if so I hope things work out for you.
