something Posted July 11, 2008 Report Share Posted July 11, 2008 My mother passed away 9 months ago. Since I'm still in college, I'm often meeting new people and asked questions about my family or where I'm from, stuff like that.I'm sure this might seem stupid to some people, but I'm still having trouble adjusting to saying "My parents live in ____." to "My dad lives in ____." Has anyone else felt the same way? I don't know if it seems trivial, but it just doesn't feel right saying "parents".Also, I sort of don't like discussing my mother's passing with strangers, since I consider it pretty personal to me, but I find when I just mention "my dad" this leads to questions about my mom's whereabouts. Sometimes I just say "parents" to avoid further questions about my mother.I was just wondering if anyone has been through the same thing? Or how they deal with it?Anyway, since then my father seems to have met someone new. I had mixed emotions at first but all in all I'm very happy for him. Sometimes it just feels like everyone has come to terms or is moving on, while I'm still stuck in the same place. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
