My mother passed away recently and it feels like there's nothing to look forward to in life. Please help me!

Question: My mother passed away recently and I don't know what to do. I have lost all interest in studies and all I want to do is stay in bed all day. I'm feeling hopeless and feel like there's nothing to look forward to in life. Please help me! Teentalker , 17-year-old

Dear Teentalker,

Thank you for reaching out. The loss that you are dealing with is immense and healing completely is going to take some time. While there are no quick fixes to what you are going through, being aware of the following will certainly help you in the long run:

  • Realize that it is okay to feel extremely sad and depressed in the initial stages as you are still getting used to not having your mother around physically.
  • Learn to focus on what you have, instead of solely focusing on what you don't have. That will help you to look at life from a positive point of view and will give you a lot.....
