Dear @teew, I am so sorry for the loss of your father. It is completely normal to be feeling a mixture of emotions when grieving. It sounds like you have also been dealing with a lot of difficult changes since the lockdown and you must have great strength. Your dad’s message in the Christmas card shows immense pride for your love and resilience as a person and as a daughter and how much he appreciated you. I’m wondering if it would be helpful to write your dad a letter, to express these feelings to him or to speak them out loud to him?

Please feel free to reach out to the Griefline help volunteers anytime between 6am-midnight if you need to talk.

You can also register for an online support group by filling in the form at the bottom of this webpage https://griefline.org.au/get-help/support-groups/

I hope you’re able to find some support.

Take care.
