I feel like it's all my fault

My fault that my whole family is either dead or dying. There. I feel a little bit better now that I said that. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not actually guilty of anything. I just feel guilty.

I find that for me, guilt gets mixed up in a strange emotional cocktail when I’m depressed. Not sure if it’s the same for you

I know I didn’t cause it all to happen. I feel like I let it happen.

How did you let it happen?

You aren’t all powerful. You don’t have any control over these things so I don’t think “I let it happen” is appropriate.

I had a sister die from cancer in her mid thirties…so I know some of what your going through but you can’t hold yourself responsible for family deaths. People get sick and die unfortunately. It’s just the way things are.

I’m glad you’re feeling better because you have no control over death or illness. It’s not your fault.
