Thanks Anita for your sympathy. It is settled and now I’m in a completely different country. By different, I mean cultural, ethnical and so on. No I don’t have any friends here. I’m still in shock. I know I need to move on and live with their dreams. But they were all I had.
I hope that you make friends in this new country, starting with one friend. Until you do, you are welcome to think of me as your friend, here in the context of your thread. You can share here anything you feel like sharing: about what you appreciate about your parents the most, your precious memories of them, their dreams for you… and anything at all that comes to your mind.
Thanks indeed for your sympathy. Making friends is really tough for me. I tend to be silent and speak to myself. It’s mixed feelings. It’s hard to believe but when I see moms and dads who are similar to mine it hurts me a lot. I can’t describe my feelings. The reason why I replied you late is that I am to depressed these days. I don’t answer my other friends either. Sorry if I’m too late to reply to your message.
As you grieve the loss of your parents, remember the good things that they valued and practiced: be it honesty, generosity, kindness, hard work, education, etc., and take it upon yourself to practice the good things that they practiced. Whatever they may have practiced that was not good- don’t practice those things. This way, you will keep the good part of them alive in this world, for as long as you are alive.
As you see people around you doing wrong, don’t join them. Try to help those who need help: show them empathy, say a kind word, make the world around you just a bit better. Don’t focus on yourself and sink into depression, instead- look around and see how you can help others.
