When we experience a tragedy we do not want to believe it has happened. This is why you may find yourself wondering, at times, if this is just a bad dream and you will soon awaken to find that it is not true. You may feel the need to tell the story over and over again which can help convince you of its truth. To move forward in the grieving process it is necessary to accept the reality of the death. Acceptance comes in time and may increase your feelings of loneliness and sadness. When you can no longer deny the death you have a greater sense of the loss and its effect on your life.
