For many, Father’s Day can be difficult to get through if you have experienced the loss of your father. I know from first-hand experience. My son was 4 years old when his father died and I was 9 when my father passed. What helped my son and I in the first few years was to talk a lot about our favorite memories of my husband. We also continued our annual Father’s Day tradition by ending the day at our favorite park, overlooking the ocean with a sunset dinner picnic. I also have 4 brothers, so celebrating with them and focusing on their joy for Father’s Day helped us as well 🙂
I hope the attached article, 5 Ways to Remember Dad – Managing Grief on Father’s Day is helpful to you at this time. Please share your thoughts and feelings in the chat room or post your own blog. We’d love to hear your favorite memories and ways that you chose to honor your father.
At Grief Hope Network, we recognize there are several ways to help you feel better in the grief recovery process. Many people don’t feel comfortable in sharing their feelings with people they don’t know in traditional counseling sessions.
