Comment on Rehoming a pet: How to cope with the grief by Katharine.
It will get better with each passing season and each passing year. I had my Bella almost five years and I grieved her a long, long time. The most important thing to consider is to FORGIVE YOURSELF. This is very important bc it is the source of most of your pain. The second is to not be too hard on yourself or grieve too intensely for too long. It’s ok to have good days even days where you let go. He/she has a new life now and has moved on. You must do so as well. I grieved too long myself but am finally at a point where I remember her with a smile on my face instead of just tears in my eyes. To get to this point though you must acknowledge the pain, forgive yourself, and let go little by little. Day by day you’ll get stronger.
Prayers sent to you.
