Holding on to the tears with clasp hands while looking up at the sky—the image of a father who lost everything in him—a man who lost the essential wealth he has in this lifetime. Silence while holding memorial jewellery in his hands, looking far from what the eyes can see. You can see the sadness in his eyes. He can barely look at you as you are staring at him.
The man lost everything he had, his family. When he was young, he wanted to become a man. Now that he is a man, he wants to be a husband. He became a husband, and father but in a blink of an eye, he lost everything. He no longer breathed the same air as he was before.
The definition of happiness is no longer what he was told when he was little. He no longer feels any flutter of excitement inside his being. He is numb and hurt. The reason for him to live has already been taken from him in an instant.
Sadness is all over him, and you can tell from his face that he can no longer see the sunshine that he used to wake up every day. He lost his balance in his life. He breathes because he is still alive, but deep inside, he is crushing. Anyone can tell because of his face. But no one can say anything that will cheer him up unless they are in his shoes.
Now, he wants to rebuild himself and start over again. But he does not know where to go and who to find to help him. He wants to overcome the pain he has inside for a long time. He wants to wake up to a brand new day and see the morning lights again.
If you are going through the same experience as the man, you can always look for people who can help you with your things. It can be your neighbour, friend or stranger that you feel that you can share a little chit chat about life. Grieving alone is very hard.
Your mind is preoccupied with things. There are things that you can't fix for yourself. You need to seek help from other people. There is no need to fight the battle alone.
If a person is grieving, they are thinking a lot of things. They want to do them all without thinking thoroughly about the result. If you have no one to talk to in your house because you are now living alone, you can stop by your friend's house or your cousins and speak with them about what you feel and what are the things that are going on in your head.
Your unspoken thoughts can cause more danger to your mental health. It is good to let it out. People around care for you and want you to be okay while you are in the process of healing.
The house is the building that you are living, but the home is where your family is. Since they passed away, you need to redecorate the house and create new memories. If you like, you can move out of the house. It will be easier for you to start a brand new life. Even if you are moving out of your old home, the beautiful memories you have in that place will always have a special place in your heart.
You will carry all the beautiful memories with you, but you need to forget the ones that create heartache. The past events are the things that shape who you are, but you can change the past by being better in your today for the best future you will have for tomorrow.
If you don't have anyone to run and talk to about what you feel and what you have in mind, you can always look for professionals who will help better understand your feelings. They will listen to you and help you surpass the things you have been experiencing. Even though it will cost you some money, you know that it is worth it if you have seen progress in your lifestyle.
You need to surround yourself with people that help you get over your hurts and loneliness. The life you are in right now is not what your family would like you to have. They want you to be happy and free from the things that you want to do since then. Part of growing is leaving the painful things that hinder you from moving on.
Improving yourself to the whole new you is better than slacking off yourself in the darkness you are not part of. Socialize with new people and make some acquaintances to create a new family that can make you happy.
