How do I cope with the death of my fave celebrity, everytime I see a picture of her or even think of her I couldn’t help but be on the verge of crying it’s almost like she’s a relative of mine
Thank you so much for being here.
Grief is a very personal and intimate experience, and it’s true that we can absolutely feel a lot of grief after a celebrity or one of our favorite artists pass away. Somehow their art/what they do becomes part of our life too. We associate plenty of memories to it, so knowing that this kind of experience can’t happen anymore is a loss.
As for any grief, I’d say what I wish someone told me the first time I lost someone I loved dearly: allow yourself to feel, allow yourself to cry, because there’s no right or wrong way to experience a loss. The only thing to be careful with is to express these emotions in a healthy way, and that you don’t stay alone with it. You just made a step in that direction by sharing your heart here, friend. How you feel makes sense, and you’ll need time to process this loss.
Was this celebrity someone creative? Maybe there could be a way for you to honor their memory by trying to create something as well. Many people draw fanarts or write poetry to honor the memory of their favorite artist and share how much they impacted their life. It can be therapeutic to find a way to honor this person, intentionally. Whether it’s through creativity, a prayer, a ritual you would own and would be meaningful to you. What matters being the intention behind, which would be to be grateful for them, for what they brought into your life, and beginning a grieving process that will allow you not to just cry, but also to smile whenever you’ll think about them.
I’m sending hugs your way.
It sounds like you love this person in a way that few would understand. When I lost someone, it occurred to me that I hurt so much because I loved so much. I found myself embracing the pain, because it helped me feel closer to the person I lost. I know it sounds counterintuitive, but I felt that as long as the pain remained acute, I could feel as though she was just there a short time ago. And somehow that made me feel closer to her.
The pain affirms the value gifted to you by this person. That in turn can invoke gratitude for having had this person in your life.
One way in which we get to know ourselves is through finding things to admire in others. You can’t recognize those attributes unless they exist at least in potential within you. Therefore, this person has been instrumental in helping you know yourself.
Tears are therapeutic.
