10 things that change after a parent's death  The loss of a parent is always tragic and can sometimes be unexpected. We are never really prepared for it. When one reaches adulthood, mourning is hard because over time our parents become our close friends, and their deaths tears us apart; we finally understand the extent of their sacrifices and all that they have given us without expecting anything in return.  From our parents, we inherit the values. They educated us, they cherished us and wished only the best for us. We will never be grateful enough for their love, dedication and all the sacrifices they have made for us. Thus, the mourning is done step by step, as shown by this woman who lost her parents and gives us ten examples of things that change in the life of a person, after this tragedy.  1. "My phone is never more than 30 centimeters away from me at bedtime, because the last time it happened, I missed the call that would tell me that my mother was coming to die. "  One feels some guilt for not being able to intercept the news in time, even if it is bad. Thus, the anxiety of receiving this type of call again and the guilt of not having answered it makes one feel obliged to be vigilant and available.  2. "After her death, thinking back to my mother always made me sick"  Some people become literally sick with the memory of their deceased parent. Some may experience transient discomfort while others become ill and remain ill for a long time before recovering.  3. "Their death can lead to conflict between family members".  Sometimes parents give their last wishes to their children before they die, or they charge one of them to do them. These children come out most often grown and grateful, although the weight of such responsibility can be immense. As a result, the last wishes of a deceased person may cause disputes between members of a family.  4. "I am angry because my son did not know them as grandparents. "  Some parents may feel frustrated because their child did not have the chance to know his ancestors, as if they had been robbed or snatched something valuable, and it is said that the grandparents would have loved their little one -son.  5. "I would not want to trade my time with them for anything, but sometimes I think it would have been easier if they had died when I was very young. "  It is sometimes wrongly thought that the death of a parent when one is young is less painful than when one has had time to grow up with them. However, the mourning and the pain that accompanies it generally remain similar, although the reactions are different.  6. "Do not complain about your parents in front of me. "  One does not realize what one has when one has lost it. This adage is probably even more true when you lose a loved one, in this case a parent. A person who has lost his parents would do anything to get them back, so do not complain about ours, let's appreciate every moment with them and be grateful for what we have.  7. "It's like being a widow"  We feel cut off from the only people who supported and protected us; as if we were separated from our half.  8. "Only those who have experienced the same drama will understand what we feel"  People who have experienced the same tragic experience will be the only ones who understand you and feel compassion for you.  9. "Life goes on, but there will always be moments when, years later, you will burst into tears as if it were yesterday. "  We do not forget our parents so easily, even years after they die. Memories continue to haunt our minds and we will never be able to undo them.  10. "When you see your friends, or even strangers, with their mom or dad, sometimes you will be jealous. "  Jealous of things to which we are no longer entitled, who will never come back.  The loss of a parent forever changes our view of the world and things in life. It also makes us better. We realize that life is ephemeral, we learn to be satisfied with what we have and we realize the importance that can take the memories for our children. So we try to provide the best, showing us more loving and caring, giving the best of ourselves.
