Celebrating Their Existence: How to Honor the Passing of a Loved One

May 21, 2020

 Losing a loved one is a tremendously difficult experience. Whether it’s a friend or a relative, the departure of a person who has added warmth and kindness to our lives leaves us with grief. Learning how to live without them and moving forward with our day-to-day struggles is a process.

Whether dealing with life insurance not paying out or inner conflicts with family, there is no simple answer for coping with the multiple effects of loss. However, one must stop to think about how to best honor the passing of a loved one. Celebrating their lives is a part of the mental and spiritual healing process.

Realize that your loved ones still live on in your memories. Continuing to appreciate how they positively influenced you is how you mark the importance of their lives. If you shared activities with your loved one while they were here, or if they taught you important lessons that have stayed with you throughout your life, then losing your loved one is not a cause to abandon these. In keeping these memories with you, you’re giving tribute to their soul.

If you’re comfortable, it can be beneficial to have a home area where you honor your loved one’s passing. Pick a beautiful photograph of them and couple it with flowers or an artistic memorial artwork. It can be a singular space where you remember your loved one with emotional freedom. Letting out your sadness is a healthy part of dealing with loss. 

Our individual spirits also benefit from goodness and generosity. You can honor your loved one’s existence by committing a positive action within your daily life. Help out a friend, donate to a charity, or aid in meaningful change in your community.

If your loved one influenced you, know that they are never truly gone. These important individuals live on through your thoughts and actions. Celebrate their existence, and honor their passing healthily and devotedly.
