Dealing with the grief that comes in the wake of the death of a family member can be significantly challenging to deal with. It can take you quite some time to move through the initial stages of grief and the extreme sense of loss that you feel.

This feeling of sorrow, frustration, and loss get heightened during days that were special when your loved one was with you.  Birthdays are particularly difficult to deal with, and you want to do something unique on that day in the memory of your loved one.  There are different ways in which you can do this; here are some thoughts:

Some Ideas

  • While it is never easy to deal with the sorrow you are feeling, make it a point to spend the day with other family members who also care about the person that has passed away.  Spending time with each other during this time can help you deal with the flood of emotions in a better way.
     
  • Every family has different ways of memorizing their loved one and anything that brings you some solace will do.  If you feel that a small birthday celebration and baking a cake brings you some peace, that is what you should be doing.
     
  • On the other hand, if the feeling of sadness is too extreme and you do not feel that you can spend time with other people around you, you can visit your loved ones grave and pay homage to them.
     
  • When you do these things, it allows you to move away from the grief that you are feeling and helps you to memorize your loved one in a much better way.
