Having to deal with those big 'first times' after a loved one has passed such as birthdays, anniversaries, Mother's Day, Father's day and Christmas. There are ways that you can process your grief and find a way to remember them by.
The first times are when we take time out of our busy lives to spend with those people we love around us. They serve as a reminder of who you've lost and what you've lost.
Special occasions can be painful and many of us choose to ignore the first times as they can be painful.
