The death of a significant person in one's life can have a long-term impact. A piece from your life has been removed and now everything hangs in disarray.
It helps to talk about the person you've lost, to express feelings about your loss and to share the memories of a time you spent with your loved one. It can also help to talk about how your loved one died and to share your feelings about how it all evolved. But sometimes you run out of people who will listen. You notice that your friends no longer ask about your well-being or they completely stop talking about the person who has died. Or sometimes the death of a loved one can present challenges that seem to be more than you can bear.
