Why is it so traumatic, I have just been through the toughest year of my life trying to deal with the death of my Love and my father and there have been many times when I thought that being dead myself would surely be better than trying to deal with the death of two people that were a significant part of my life and all the misery that went with it. What I want to know is, what is the point of grief, why is it so awful to the point that you feel your own life is not worth living, why is the experience so shocking and what do we really gain from it. I know I am not the same person and that everything is different now, I don't view that as a bad thing really but what it took me to get to the other side of this is something I find hard to deal with and I wonder what your thoughts are on grief? Can we ignore it and just get on with our lives because some people seem able to do that, whereas I couldn't carry on, I couldn't even function at all for months and months. Maybe that's a tough journey
I read this during a good phase in my life (haven't yet had to experience a truly bad one yet), and found it very educating and opened my eyes to look at grief and the "end" of things in a healthier way. Just the fact that there are so many life milestones that deserve that extra time to acknowledge before moving on to the next phase. Plus just seeing the hurdles this girl had to survive helped me deal (and be grateful for) my own little hurdles and obstacles.
