My grandpa died this February after a long and arduous battle with Alzheimer’s Disease. While it wasn’t unexpected, his death hit me hard and the grief and loss have made it difficult for me to continue with my blog and with the work I do in the personal development industry. I’m hanging in for now, and here are some things no one will tell you about grief.
This post is an unedited, stream of consciousness about grief, death, and losing a loved one. I’m posting the content with minimal edits to give you the most intimate view of what losing a loved one does to your brain that I can. There will be followup posts in the coming weeks. This was written March 15.
My grandpa died three weeks ago today. It doesn’t feel like that long, but it also feels like an eternity since then. I feel like I was living some other life even though I’m basically doing the same things for the same reasons.
