Before, during, and after the Franklin, TN cremation for your deceased loved one, you’ll be dealing with a wave of emotions. Shock, sadness, confusion, grief, and anger are just some of the emotions you may experience. And you can bet that you’ll have a lot of questions going through your mind. What follows is a look at some of the questions you may encounter — as well as answers that will hopefully provide some comfort in your time of need.
“I’m Not Sure I’ll Be Able to Move on After the Death of My Loved One. What Should I Do?”
While it tends to be easier said than done, it’s still good advice to remember that you’ll need time to adjust to your new normal. When a death occurs, you will initially have a hard time dealing with the finality of it all. Death causes separation — and when that separation involves people who shared close bonds in this life, it can be hard. But hang in there, surround yourself with supportive people, and remember to take care of yourself. Things will get better, but it will take time. And you should give yourself all the time you need.
“I Feel as Though My Friends Are Avoiding Me. Why Have They Become So Distant?”
If it feels as though your friends are distant, it might simply be that they don’t know how to react or what to do. Some people simply feel uncomfortable about issues related to death. If they see you falling apart under the strain, they might not know what to do. You might have to be the one to let them know how they can help. Chances are they’ll respond when they know what they can do to assist you in your time of need. You might want to talk to someone on the phone, head out to a restaurant with some friends for lunch, or simply hang out with people you know at home.
“Why Did God Allow This to Happen to Me?”
Are you a religious person? The death of a loved one might cause you to question why, if there’s a loving deity, there has to be so much pain and suffering in the world. Asking questions like this when your grieving is fair and healthy. Remember, though, that life is a mixed bag with some good experiences and some bad experiences. And while the negative occurrences may be painful, you shouldn’t allow them to obscure all of the blessings in life. All families deal with death at some time or another. This is, unfortunately, that way it’s always been. It’s important to accept this reality, focus on the positive, and live life to the fullest. Things will get better.
