You now face the rest of your life without your child’s physical presence. I am sure you would have given your own life in a split-second in exchange for your child’s life, and you would give everything to have him or her back with you on this Earth. But you know that is not possible.
You probably feel isolated and misunderstood by those who have not experienced the loss of a child.
Maybe you have struggled to find support from therapists who don’t really understand child loss.
And you may have had to incorporate a new spiritual framework into your life in order to survive.
After your child died, you couldn’t imagine how you would continue to live without him or her. You know you will never ‘recover’ from this loss, nor will you ever find ‘closure’ or ‘move on’.
You will never be the same person you were before your child’s passing, but maybe -just maybe- you can find a ‘new normal’, a new purpose to help you move forward.
What can you do to continue to live in the best possible way you now can in honour and memory of your child?
