One of the strange emotions I feel like I go through sometimes in grief is jealousy. It’s not necessarily one I expected to go through. Jealousy of people who aren’t carrying around the heavy burden of loss but even jealousy of the things people get to share with their dads. My best friend told me she was pregnant with her first baby and I was so happy for her, yet it ached for me…to know I won’t ever get to see my dad be a grandfather to my own kids. He was an amazing pap pap to my nieces and nephews and I was excited for that stage in life. Have any of you found yourselves dealing with jealousy in your grief? Any advice on coping?
