Losing a Loved one
Losing a loved one is hard to deal with sometimes. Everyone has to go through it one way or another. Dealing with it is not easy, believe me. It’s really hard when you don’t know what the body is going to go through. It takes a toll on the body, and the way of life as we know it. Throughout this essay I will be going through the steps I went through as I coped with the death of a loved one.
Denial is just the begging of what to look forward to. Denial is what first kicks in. I refused the news that my step-dad was dead. I could not believe it when I was told the news. My step-dad was there for me when I needed him. He was one of a few people that I let into my heart. Even though he is gone there will always be a place for him in my heart.
Shock and anger is what comes next. With shock you may not have a reaction to the news. Anger is the worst of it all. Anger comes in when all of the anger inside, that it bottles up explodes! When I felt this anger I kept it all inside. I finally got to a point where I had to let it out. My boyfriend was the one that I let it all out on. Luckily he understood what I was going through at the time.
Depression is the last step I went through with losing my step-dad. After he past I only seen a horrible end and nothing beyond it. I felt hopeless and didn’t know what do. I turned to myself, and no matter what other people said it didn’t help me. Throughout the process I felt all alone even though all my loved ones were there for me.
I made it through my step-dad dying. It was one of the hardest things that I ever had been through. He made my mom and I a wonderful family. Before he died he gave my mom the best gift of all. A wonderful baby boy, named Ryan. He reminds us all of his father Andy. These steps are what helped me cope with his death. He was wonderful man, RIP Andy Chambers.
