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?
