Default To All Who Have Lost.....

I just want to take this time to say how much it saddens me to all who have lost their sweet babies. Just coming to this part of the forum is sad and I want to apologize to all those who have posted about the passing of their babies for not posting my thoughts.

It's a very hard subject and we've all experienced the loss of a pet or a person who we love and no words seem enough.

People always say...."It will get easier." Which we all know is not true, it's very far from the truth. The days without that person or pet don't get easier we just get caught up on the process of everyday life. The pain is always just below the surface.

All you can do is accept that is it part of life, human and pet, and carry on because that it what they want you to do.

To everyone who has gone or will go through the experience that I just did...stay strong.

One day I discovered that crying was making me feel worse overall and I needed something long term to look to in my heart. So I have started doing something that requires me to focus and do something positive to remember a lost companion. I call these memorials . something that brings a picture in my mind of the lost one. If I cry so much I am useless and that drains my energy and desire to improve expressions of love for our little ones.
Blessings, Jo Ann

Grief is a very personal experience and each individual grieves in their own unique way. Striving to honor aging and death as a part of the cycle of life may not diminish the pain and sorrow we feel when our loved one is no longer with us, yet it can help us accept that birth, life, and death is the way of all creation.

I believe during times of grief it is important to focus on the positives of the time spent with the beloved person or pet who has moved on in their journey.

Concentrating on gratitude for the blessings given through whatever amount of time one had with their loved one turns emotions away from feeling sorrow for one's self and brings the focus on the joys of the memories we shared. Although we miss having that person/pet as part of our day to day existence, and the time we had always seems too brief, giving thanks for the time we were given is the first step in healing the pain and sorrow.

It is very difficult to deal with the loss of a loved one. It's been 6 weeks since Smoky passed away and I still miss her more than anything. You're right it doesn't get easier, we do just get caught up with other things... but every now and then we remember them. And it hurts. Everyday is different too. Yesterday I was better than today. Today I miss her so much. Just trying to focus on our wonderful memories together. That's usually just what helps me. xo

I wholly agree what everyone has said. My sweet budgies that have passed on in different ways over the years still hold big parts in my heart.It aches and as time goes by, the edges are softer but it never completely goes away. And that's ok. I do know that eventually another little budgie needs a chance to be in my life and I like to think Lily is telling me this. The 2 other ones I have right now keep me going and they need me as well. So yes, I know it is hard when the one you saw everyday is gone but you will know the time when things will be better for new adventures ahead.
