ENVY

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines “Envy” as “The feeling of wanting to have what someone else has.” Yeah, that just about nails it. It’s one of the “Deadly Seven Sins.” It’s a lot like jealously, with the added element of desire. The strong desire to have what they have.

The grief of losing

When I was just a little girl I thought I knew it all

But as the years have gone by, I've never felt so small

I never knew what life would be without you teaching me

But now I'm lost and am scared but there's no way to flee

Dad I know you'd want me to be happy and I know you'd want me to smile

What Helps....

With each passing week

My heart is filled with a void

With the knowledge 

You are not here.

 

I look at the calendar

And cannot believe

How long it's been .

Did life  just pass by 

Without you here at my side?

Am I the only one holding on

To the life there was 

When you were here?

 

I WILL ROAM

I cry myself to sleep

Behind closed doors I weep

But I make it day by day

God you have showed me the way

I feel the pain, hurt & sorrow

Because of You, I live for tomorrow

FOREVER MINE

I touched your sweet face

Kissed you on the cheek

Held you in my arms

Forever will I weep

 

You couldn't stay very long

For some reason

You had to go

Oh, God, this feels so wrong

 

I want you back

Sweetie, you'll always be mine

I'll see you again someday

It'll just be a matter of time

Missing Your Parents During the Holidays Series: 7 Ways to Feel Better (Part 2)

 

Find a good therapist.

Staying mentally healthy is really important if you're going to enjoy this life. Many therapists are the busiest during the holidays because many people find it so depressing! I've been seeing therapists on and off since I was 17. I actually put in an original request with my parents at 15, which was denied.
