Christmas without a loved one
Last Update: Dec 26, 2022
Its been 3 weeks since I lost my mom on December 3rd, today is Christmas, and although I have not lost sight of the reason, I have not been able to find any holiday cheer, spirit,.. I have lost my love for the holiday. No tree, no decorations, no watching our favorite christmas movies, no presents, no celebrating... just a dark/ heavy emptiness.
Hold your loved ones close, slow down and live in the moment, don't take for granted you will have time.... we always think we have more time.
It's so hard to lose someone so special. It will take time to adjust to life without that person. But that day will come. Things won't ever be the same again, but that doesn't mean that good days can't exist as well. Give yourself time and lots of grace to mourn any way you need to, even if it seems weird at the time. Be very kind to yourself and do whatever you want. It will help.
We each deal with loss in our own way. Sorry, it was so difficult for you this year.
Hang on to the good memories, discard the bad ones and live this year looking forward to a new year.
Fortunately, you are well established here in Wealthy Affiliate and have a business to maintain and grow. You're getting up and getting started going forward is a habit by now.
Giving yourself a bit of time to grieve is important, but so is moving on, and looking forward. Will look forward to seeing more of you here in Wealthy Affiliate hallways,
I’m so sorry for your loss. I know the feeling. We lost our mother and father years ago.
It takes a while and you never really get over it. We keep them in our hearts and celebrate the great times we had by remembering them during the holidays.
I am so sorry for your loss, Kerri! While it is still so fresh this time around. Keep your mother in your heart, where she will also be, ans well as looking down on you from above. Next Christmas do everytihng that you had always done with her and she will be right there with you!

Nice to meet you here in WA. But then, sorry to hear about your loss. It's ok, but all of that will passes in time. You can cry if you want to, talk to near friends or relatives, have a good nap, or be silent for a while. That helps a lot at the moment, and it's really hard at the time of adjustment because we love them. But we need to move on... After that grief, starts to cherish the day and the life you have left. You'll be ok, and you can do it. Be strong!
Take care always,
