Loved Ones Losing Loved Ones During Pandemic Life

An empath’s view of healing heartache on top of handling hardships.

Is it just me, or does it seem since the pandemic started, our family and friends have all experienced more death than we can recall under “normal” life within this stressful two month period? It’s been a tough two months!

I’m not even talking about the hundreds of thousands who have passed due to the disease itself! That alone is unfathomable and utterly saddening.

I’m only talking about non-pandemic related incidents.

I sadly know many loved ones who have lost husbands, best friends, parents, grandparents, and pets, more so since before this all started it seems.

It’s gut-wrenching to know of some of the losses that have happened… some even unimaginable.

One of the hardest realizations to accept is how we as a society have been forced to adapt our already-difficult grieving process.

Some have had to host a zoom funeral, or should we say a “Zoom-eral” because of travel restrictions and social distancing measures. Some people were alone when their dog died while they held their poor pooches in their arms, crying goodbye.
