Losing a Loved One


Has anyone lost a loved one? I know I have more than once.  At first I didn’t know what to do.  Then I remembered some of the things I had learned

 I had lost my great-grandmother when I was in fifth grade.  I didn’t know how to get over it.  It took me actually three years to get back to my normal self.  It hit me hard.  I slacked off in school and I pretty much kept to myself.

 As a junior I took Strategies for Success.  It really made a difference.  During the year, I lost my great-aunt whom I was also very close to.  I thought it was going to be the same situation again, but then I remembered what I had learned.  The four Power Questions really helped. (I thought to myself, “What is good about this, what can be good, what can I do to make it good.”)

They really helped.  I thought quietly to myself about the situation and finally found some good in it.  Thinking positively can honestly make a positive situation out of a negative one.
