The Issue of Grudges And Death

cremation services in Richland, PAThere are so many things that can arise around the issue of death and dying. When someone passes away, your immediate concern is their cremation services in Richland, PA and possible memorial services you want to have around that process. However, there can be a lot of emotional issues as well. It would be nice if grief always worked the same way in everyone, so it was easier to predict, but that’s not how life works. Your grief will depend on your personality, the way you process things, and your relationship with the person who passed on.

In a perfect world, you make peace with a person before they pass on. You have a chance to tell them you love them, and you make your last words to them something sweet and sentimental. But as we all know, we don’t live in that perfect world. Perhaps it works like that for you sometimes, but there are going to be other times when someone passes away, you have regrets, or you might even feel like you are holding a grudge against them that you weren’t able to resolve.

Grudges can build over time or be something that happens all of a sudden. If someone who you feel abandoned you or someone who abused you in the past passes away and you are not able to resolve things before they do, that grudge can live on. Grudges can even form over small things. Perhaps you felt like your sibling was favored and that caused you to hold a grudge against them. IT could even be a simple misunderstanding that started the emotions, but if it was never cleared up, the emotions are valid in your eyes.

There’s no way to speak to every situation and you may want to seek outside help to work through your feelings after the person in question passes away. However, if at all possible, it’s good for you to try and forgive the person in question. Nothing you hold on to can bring them back to resolve things with you. Nothing you can do now will allow you those moments back. In order to move on, you might want to release yourself from the prison you have formed around yourself because of the grudge.
