What I Miss About My Loved One
Awareness Exercise: Make a list of all the things that you miss about your (loved one).
There are so many things that you will miss about them. The smell of their hair. Their nurturing ways. Their loving heart. The way they made you smile and laugh. Their simplicity. Their unique personality and much more. Our (loved one) was so unique and quirky, so don’t forget those parts of them too. The list may be endless, but keep writing all the things you miss about your (loved one).
As painful as it is to list all the things you miss about them, it’s also a lovely awareness exercise. It will help you see how significant your (loved one) was in your life and why you feel so overwhelmed on the days that you really miss them. It will help you normalise your feelings and reactions to your grief and add a small amount of comfort in knowing that what you are feeling is a normal grief reaction to a significant loss.
You may keep adding to this list, so keep some space in your journal.
