My grief surprises me

I was just listening to “fool to cry” by the rolling stones and started bawling…I am not over my dad I don’t think…now I feel better suddenly but I had to change the music.

I’m sorry, man. Losing your dad is tough. The grieving process is a long road, and I don’t believe it ever fully heals, and existentially speaking I don’t know if it should heal. One day you’ll listen to a song or watch a movie and instead of sadness you’ll be hit with a fond memory.

Stay strong, my dude.

You’ll never be completely over your dads passing. You’ll just learn to accept it and keep moving forward. Hang in there.

The grief never completely goes away, but with the passing of time it does get more tolerable @jukebox

My Mother passed away in 2019 and I still miss her but the heartbreaking grief has faded

Man i would never get over losing my dad. he’s getting up there at 70. I would just flash on back to duck duck goose games or dad’s days when i was four or losing the deodorant in hide and seek forever. or the house we all grew up in. I may have to prepare something to say when he dies.
