Heartache, misery and sorrow; the death of a loved one can be expressed using these three simple terms. But, can the death of a loved one really be described? Alice W. Terry writes the exceptional journal about the stages of grief, how to cope and how it truly feels to lose a loved one, a daughter to be exact. Not having experienced the physical loss of someone as close to me as a daughter is to her mother, this journal gave me a personal perspective of the anguish experienced by those who are grieving.
December 17, I had to endure a long hard journey but it made me into the person I am
Human life narrative is incomplete without talking about grief. Man goes through moments of mourning and grief when faced with terminal illnesses, death of a close relative or friend or animal. We respond differently when faced by challenging situations, some will outwardly, in tears when thoughts of the experience runs in their mind while others will hurt from the inside. Our role is not to judge how a person griefs (Axelrod, 2014, p. 1) but rather to offer support in these moments.
I played bingo, volleyball and I won a manicure for the activate event. I played bingo, the two-game hosts with Mrs. Bonnie. The hosts told me and players that show the numbers-letters of a combination. Bonnie heard the hosts and interpreted me with American Sign Language carefully for the bingo game. I spelled "BINGO" with my fingers when I raised my hand up with a wave at the hosts. They examined my two game cards because of that matched same numbers correct! I got to win the manicure from the bingo game. I leave the cafe where I play the game to going the outside. I played volleyball with the black female student for fun. I liked to play the volleyball, but I was not a good player. I gave another volleyball to the small
Attachment, expectedness, and grief accumulation, are important variables that impact the way an individual experiences grief, further influencing the way they heal (Golden, 2000). Marilyn is experiencing circumstances that influence how she is grieving. Her son, who was a major part of her life, died unexpectedly in a car accident. Additionally, she is experiencing accumulated grief from a lack of closure after her father passed away. Golden (2000) reports that when an individual loses someone they are very attached to they will experience a greater degree of grief. Furthermore, if the loss was unexpected, such as a car accident, the grief will be significantly different than if it was expected. Another important factor in the grieving process focuses on the presence of accumulated grief. If grief isn’t acknowledged and/or dealt with, it can have an impact on everyday life and can affect the way an individual copes with other grief occurrences (Golden, 2000). Marilyn still has unresolved issues revolving around her parents’ divorce and subsequent death of her father.
The young mind is a wonderful thing, however the concept of losing someone so dearly loved and cherished can be difficult to understand;

Bowlby wrote that involuntary loss can bring forth “many forms of emotional distress and personality disturbance, including anxiety, anger depression and emotional attachment.” (Bowlby, 1979. 127) Therefore, it is important for the client to be aware of the root cause of these feelings for their own wellbeing. Without this insight or awareness, they will never be able to explore the relationship with the lost loved one or the type of attachment that existed in a healthy way.
The most historic event that has had the most impact on mankind is the birth of Jesus Christ. This event has had the most profound significance for both Christians, and non Christians. No other life lived on this planet has so widely and deeply affected mankind. No other has made an impact through huge volumes of literature, in so many languages across the world. As we explore this event we cannot help but begin from where it all started.
In April 2013 during the spring break of my sophomore year of high school, I lost my father due to a heart attack. This brought my life and my family to a complete standstill. Not only was this devastating but it put a financial burden on my family as my mother struggled to keep my brother in college. It was only by the grace of God that he was able to

Death of a loved one can be overwhelming. The world changes for those in grief. While some may be grateful that loved one is no longer suffering, countless others were not prepared for a family member or friend’s life to end. Maybe the death was sudden or sudden, the child died, nobody can prepare those left behind for the anguish of experiences. Grief often lies beyond words, beyond the simple explanation of of our conscious minds. It is in the unconscious, the mystery of life, that expression the deep wounds and traged of lossis found (Earl, 2007).
What is a “significant event”, truly I mean? A baby’s first step, high school graduation, or even the pay raise that benefits you with a very very generous paycheck. A “significant event” to me is to have a realization or occurrence that changes your perspective. In my case, i have had so many negative events occur, it should be illegal. In this case it was an incident in which caused a major realization, an “AHA!!” moment, an epiphany. I went to a chinese restaurant and ate some shrimp fried rice and eggrolls, but after dinner was over of course the waiter brought the bill and a few fortune cookies. We all finished eating and opened the cookies. I usually don’t take the fortunes seriously but this one actually made me think. Not just think, but truly question and reconsider everything i could possibly byass on a day to day basis. I take in the words, “ Broke is temporary, poor is a state of mind” (Little dragons fortune cookie). Of course being me, I overanalyzed and overthought but it took a certain memory for me to actually understand and recognize the true significance of this quote.
up and followed my daily routine: brush my teeth, put on my clothes, and went to school. Little did I know, that would be the day that changed everything. I found out that my uncle Danny had been diagnosed with lung cancer. The chemo originally worked and he went into remission. After a few months of remission, the doctors said he would have a few months to live. After he passed away, I couldn't talk to him. I couldn't see him anymore. He was just gone. Cancer ended the life of someone very precious to me and his death sparked the beginning of my desire to battle this disease.
