I have to admit that I have never understood why my Father’s passing many years ago did not affect me greatly, but my Mother’s nearly two years ago did. On Mother’s day, it came to me like a blinding flash, after my father died, my sister said she was going to visit him. I remember saying that I did not need to because I had come to terms with his death.
I am also wondering if my grief with my mother’s passing is not now for her alone nor my father nor them both. But for the realisation that I am now truly alone for the rest of my life because I am single, no children and my immediate family is just my sister. We have never been close, especially as young adults, we just lead separate lives and now we finally plan to sell our parental house which we both own jointly and go our separate ways. Now all of a sudden the world seems grey and sad.
Has anyone else experienced these sort of ideas after losing both parents?
