I think in general, most young people don't truly grasp the effect of death on the living probably because most haven't experienced such close loss yet. For those of us who have experienced it, it's unfathomably difficult in more ways than one, and sometimes when you're really feeling the void, it feels like it's even hard to relate to your friends and extended family members. I've noticed what helps is just hearing what other people have been through... so I thought I would ask. What was your experience?

i lost my mother at 14 to Cancer, then my father at 17 after he drank himself to death. Losing his shit after she passed.
there is no way to get over a loss for grief is an emotion that is uniquely yours. Plus, some people have extensive support networks while others have next to no one. You just have to be really honest with yourself and gentle. If you need to cry, cry, if you need to express, express. Alternatively, if you cannot face things, lock it a way in denial0
