March 3rd

Today is march 3, 2012, which means that it has been two years since my dad died. the rest of my family doesnt even remember today, but why do i? why do i remember every little detail that happened this day 2yrs ago? why can't i just accept that he is gone? i know i miss him and i really try not to let it bum me out sometimes, but i was close with my dad and i was only 16 when he died and i was in 2 depressions since his death, i really dont want a im not on any anti-depressants, i just had 1-2 friends help me through it. but still why cant i move on?

we can never forget our loved ones. we learn to live without them. well why do you think your dad has died? i mean why do you take it that way? when you dad lived he used to bring happiness to you. just because he has died he has become the reason for your sadness. if you dad is really somewhere in the stars then he is really very unhappy to see you like this. dont kill him, in your mind. think about him think how he would have done something. think if you have really done sth to make him proud.just dont kill the spirit of him in your heat by being sad.
hope to hear from you

we all mourn in our own ways. Adjusting to the loss of a parent at your age has to be very hard, so don't beat yourself up thinking you should be able to just move on. Perhaps it would help you if you just did something formal like lighting a candle and saying a prayer in remembrance of him. Or perhaps going to his headstone and talking to him. Or sit down and write him a letter to put your thought together and let them out. Or taking some time to go do an activity or volunteer work in something you know he would have liked or approved of. It's ok to take time and remember our loved ones, but it's important to keep living and moving forward.
