  • You don’t move on from the lost of a love one you move forward with it. I lost my parents and my one and only child grief is my constant companion and I know I have to live with it for the rest of my life����

  • I lost my mother when I was really young, I was 8. I wasn’t given an outlet to process it. I don’t think I was able to. I wad probably too young to process my way through the loss on my own, my guardian was offered counselling for me but turned it down. I really wish they’d accepted it. I couldn’t fully process the loss and changes on my own. It isn’t until the last few years that I have been able to start process losing my mum so young and it’s true impact on my life. I really miss her. I feel lost without her and I feel like I really need her. I like to listen to music that makes me feel close to her, I will jump on to any song that makes me feel like she is really there, beside me. I hate that she wasn’t here to see me finish school or go to college, I hate that she won’t be here to see me get married or have babies of my own. I kind of hate that my brothers got more time with her and she got to see both of them become adults, I hate that I never got to have a mother-daughter relationship with her like my friends and cousins got to have with their mothers. I am 24 now. Do you think all of this could be complicated grief?

  • # faq kati Morton
    Hi Kati Morton My name is Jessica whitehead I am your biggest fan for ever I love you and Shaun. I lost one of my best friends from school died by suicide I really miss her like a sister and I loved and cared and missed her.
    I found out that she died on Facebook and then I asked another one of my best friends from school if it was true and she said that it was and a nother one of my best friends told me to move on and forget about her and get over it I have not cryied about what happened or tell anyone that she hade died. I promise her that I would be strong for her family and our friends and I never got to tell her what I was thinking about & that I spoke to her the night before she decided to leave here. I also know she died I blame myself then and even now 4 almost 5 years ago. I didn’t even get to go to her house or her funeral. I hade so many plans to meet up with our friends from school thanks.��

  • I lost my great grandma on December 20th 2019 right around the time I left school with my friend, we were just going to watch high school musical for kicks and giggles and have a good time. After only being at the house for 5 minutes my mom yelled downstairs that my friend had to go home, I of course asked why, she said my great grandma was pronounced dead 20 minutes ago. I didn’t have time to realized what happned cuase I was immediately golfed into a hug by my friend. I didn’t have time to cry or anything, I had to make sure my mom was save as we drove back to my friends house to drop them off, they were pretty understanding of the situation.. it didn’t hit me until that night when I got back home and got ready for bed, i said i still wanted to go to school, but my whole entire grade asked me to stay home.. so I did.
    Now that it’s been awhile, and 2020 has been absolute hell in so many words, the loss and grief of losing her has caught up to me. I’ve been so focused on keeping my family & friends okay, I havent have time to even think about myself.. i hope if your still reading this that your okay and that we understand what your going threw, we all love and care for you. ��������
    (Edit: before any of you asked she would have been 99 in july)

  • I lost my best friend (march 6 2019 i knew on march 8 2019) my cat died yesterday and i knew right awat
    I haven’t seen any of thier last moments

  • I’m not saying anything because I have no right to but the feeling of death is like knots in your stomach like someone punched you or someone is trying to take out an organ in your body, this feeling I’ve felt a lot last year and it’s coming back to get me again but if your reading this you have to know it’s going to be hard and it will never go away but soon it will get easier till your almost better but you will never completely get better and to those who has lost a loved one just know they passed for a reason and they are in a better place, there not suffering any more, you will meet again and don’t forget they’ve already met someone amazing… YOU — let me know if I’ve made your day a little lighter because dealing with what I’m going through now this made me feel a little better ❤️

  • I can’t remember because I was 7 years old when the fire started. And I lost my mom and a lot of my dad and a little sister and a little brother and I don’t remember most about them I still think could i have done everything to help my dad ��. I might’ve done something but I might not have done a thing that thought

  • I just lost my grand aunt, who helped raise my dad, me and my brother. She was the most selfless person I knew, she always but others’ needs before her own. I find that playing piano helped me but those emotions into “art”. She passed yesterday at only 57 from an unexpected stroke… she was in China while we are in Canada, it pains me that I couldn’t see her at least one last time.

  • Thank you so much Kati Morton. These videos really help me I am going through so much loss at the moment. Again thank you so much. God bless all. ⭐️

  • On February 18th,2018, my Grandmother “Mama” passed away. Over 2 years later on May 31st, 2020, my grandfather “Poppop” passed away, but in less a month, 2 weeks later, today, my grandmother became very sick from liver issues which resulted in dementia. I am only in seventh grade and this have been one of the toughest years of my life. It is still unbelievable that both of my grandparents became very sick, and passed around the same time together. Which makes me appreciate the fact that I grew up with grandparents unlike some other people that I knew. Whoever is reading this god bless you and just know everyone goes through things like this in life.

  • What about when grief comes back? My best friend passed a year and seven months ago. The latter half of 2019 I felt acceptance, I was in a good place with it. This January though I just feel pain’s frustrating because it doesn’t feel okay to talk about it now after so much time.

  • I lost my grandma in February then my dad a month later. Im not doing well at all. Started zoloft but its still early to see the benifits.

  • Am not able to handle Grief. My wife died after the delivery of our first baby. Within hours happiest day of my life turns into saddest. Am not able to believe what just had happened, no way this can happen to us. In my memories our last night is fixed. She was in immense pain holding my hand the whole time asking me for water, doctors told me not to give water. I was kept on crying making her remember she cannot give up on me, making her remember our moments. For a moment she uses to show the strong face and again pain comes to her face. I do not remember anything of her apart for this memory. Not able to sleep or eat. Sometime am not even able to breath. The whole night is kept on running in front of my eyes

  • I’ll never wish this pain on anyone. Sucks. I lost 7 people I loved within the past year and I never lost people in my life like this at all. Trusting to talk to people about it so that it doesn’t debilitate my body. Peace and love

  • Ah, how wonderful that you are back! ❤️ I subscribed to your channel a few months ago and was wondering what happened. This is a really good video and many people can learn from it. Lots of love! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

  • Watched a battle buddy die in basic training after stabbing himself in throat with a pen and ripping it. I held it the best I could and put as much pressure as I could. Watching a 17 year old take his last breath two days into reception. There are days like today where I see the pain in his eyes and make things very hard to grasp.

  • I haven’t lost a loved one but one of my biggest fears is losing my mother or any of my 5 siblings… I hope everyone who has lost a loved one in their life copes..

  • Interesting that they say long term grief activates reward centers of the brain, but they don’t expand on that. More information here:

  • This is the price we pay for life. Try take heart from the little things and the wonderful times you had. I’m sorry for your loss. If people don’t understand that’s okay it doesn’t undermine your pain or loss. Whoever you lost would want the best for you and want you to heal. Try doing that for them. Be strong and brave for them. Honour their life by living yours. RIP Smudge my beloved cat.

  • I’m 13 and I woke up today at 6am because I heard my mom crying, I went to their room and saw my dad hugging her, I asked what happend and my mom and dad told that my grandpa passed away, I loved my grandpa so much, and now he is gone, I already miss his voice and laughs and I don’t know will I get over it

    Edit: I came back from his funereal and I cried so much, and I still feel sad

  • “God won’t give you more than you can handle”, “they are in a better place”, and “When God closes a door he will open a window”, these are among the most hated things people said to me at 2 different funerals

  • thanks for this I’m struggling hey…My dad died in 2006 and I’ve never been the same I cannot Transform or evolve feel stuck I’ve lost myself to this world…but I remember I used to paint and I was talented perhaps thats where I can use it to evolve..thank for the video. Grief is love with no place to go…

  • My dad passed away two months ago. I’ve been acting fine on the outside and being normal because I feel like it’s my duty to be strong for my mom. I cry myself to sleep almost every night but no one knows. I don’t want to burden anyone with my feeling or maybe I unconsciously just don’t want to talk about it. I’ve always been a cheery and outgoing person and I still am like that on the outside. But on the inside it hurts so much. It hurts so so much. I’m only thirteen and I feel like I have so much weight on my shoulders. My dad passed away four days before my birthday and not having him there just tore me apart. But I of course kept a strong face for my mom and pretended everything was fine. Thank you for the advice I’m considering keeping a journal

  • I didn’t know how grief feels like so I wrote it down while hoping that someone would tell me how it really feels like.

  • Man, I am so hard in bargaining stage right now. I’m praying to a god that I don’t even know is there. I’m not religious, but every night I kinda just sit there in bed saying over and over, “I would do anything to bring him back.” I cant even believe its almost a year, I spent it all sleeping and crying. I still wake up, look at the obituary on my nightstand and realize, my best friends dead.

  • Lost my dad, mom and aunt within two years. Aunt actually passed on day we were burying her sister, my mother.
    Being a drug addict, I went to a very dark place in my grief. I was ready to give up on trying until one day I got arrested, sobered up and got help with the real issue of healthy grieving.

    It took their passings for me to be a truly better person taking life each day at face value. It’s been almost 2 years sober but I have gained a coping mechanism that I no longer feel sad about them but celebrate each day the time, wisdom and love they shared with me my whole life.

    Hope someone out there can admit they need help through their grief cause it gets easier doing so!

  • I have lost so many people, it started at 3 yrs old father took me to funeral home, 9, 16, 19, 29, 30, and so on, a laundry list of losses.
    To name some. 3 were self inflicted.
    Aunt (illness), 7 yr old neighbor (best friend) who had Cystic Fibrosis, a 19 yr old friend who asked me to go steady, he died 2 weeks later after partying on his birthday (drug and alcohol), I had declined because we were like brother and sister, eldest sister (SI), coworker (SI), pregnancy stillborn at 6 mos., my Mom 6 mos. after birth of (1st born) daughter, second sister (SI) 10 months after Mom. I think you get the point. A therapist I saw recently asked, “How long ago was this?” with each loss I enumerated.
    Now, I live in a retirement community where deaths are more frequent, but it makes more sense, they are elderly. I have known and still know quite a few Centurians. It still hurts to lose a friend, but it is how we all will end up.
    But, tragic, unexpected always hurts. It really affected my ability to get closer to people. Commitment issues.
    Move on? Get over? Suicide, especially, sends me reeling.
    I can appreciate losses. I went to Survivors of Suicide group therapy.

  • I lost my father last month from COVID and i cry every night. I searched grieving for a loved one and this video came up. Its easier said that done but this put many things into perspective for me. Thank you

  • I lost my mother at the age of 6 & I’m 51 now, I’m just beginning to intentionally start the grieving process. Up until now I’ve lived this life numb & unaware of my feelings \emotions. ��

  • I have been trying for i am almost to the ten year mark of her death and it does not mader we where really young it still hurts so much and i wish the pain would stop

  • My little bird buddy snowman just died and my bird named pip passed a while back. I love you two, can’t wait to see you both again. Rip pip and snowy ❤️��

  • my uncle passed away almost three months ago because of cancer and I still cry myself to sleep everynight, blaming myself because I was not there when he needed it the most. Everytime I go out with my friends they seem always upset because I’m sad and ruining the mood although they don’t say that openly… sometimes I just don’t want to exist or go out to interact with people because it’s so hard to live like this and not being understood, he was a father to me..

  • I’m dealing with the death of my fiancé of 8yrs and 13 yrs all together. He passed from cancer July 17th and it was so fast. He was diagnosed within the last two months. Well it wasn’t a full two months. He was my best friend. It’s feeling like I have no reason to be here. I’m so devastated and hurting. I keep kissing and talking to his photos. I have the picture of him in the casket.. I can’t live without him!

  • I can’t cope my mother died today she had COPD. I feel I could have saved her. I failed her. I can’t cope. I can’t sleep. I am frightened.

  • My grandmother passed away this evening in our house, I feel numb and everything is blurry and unreal, but I expected her death, because she was very weak this week…

  • My cousin is in a deep place right now, and I’m worried that soon they’ll cut it off, even though they haven’t said that. So much is happening that I’m worried it will be too much for them.. I have major anxiety and have been having attacks almost every night because it kicks in “They could be dead right now.. and I wouldn’t know until tomorrow..” I’m so scared and honestly I’m preparing for it by watching these types of videos, I don’t know what to do since I break down when I try to talk to people about my issues and or worries about someone else. Walking up to them and saying “Hey, I know you’re going through a lot right now, you wanna talk about it?” Should be easy, but I just can’t, because I break. I start crying and immediately fall into another anxiety attack. Attacks have been constant lately, and it’s terrifying, I’m honestly just preparing and avoiding. I don’t want to break down with them, or make them feel guilty for worrying me. But I also don’t want to have that constant stress of thinking they could be gone any day.. I don’t know what to do.

  • Great video. What about the process of grief experienced well before the person passes (when you get hit with the realization that it is coming in the next year or so), especially for one already with a depressive disorder?

  • I lost my dad 4 days ago. From then on I am visiting videos that would help me cope. I dont know that one can ever move on. It’s just a lie. You need to accept the fact and live with it. I am even more worried about my mom and little sister, it hurts me see them cry and there is nothing I could do about it. May god give us strength to overcome. And you the one reading this, plz give a hug to ur loved and when they are still around.
