Does this happen to anyone else? I constantly see recommendations to do something to stay busy or commemorate your loved one on a holiday, birthday, or anniversary. Maybe I’m doing this wrong, but usually a couple days later, in a quiet moment, it catches up to me, and I have a bad day. It’s like I can’t escape the sadness - it will get me sooner or later if I try to keep busy on a day I might be sad.
