Default Looking for someone who also lost a parent young....

Hello everyone, I havent been here in a long time because I have been feeling much better, partly because in my therapy weve been focusing on other things, however, I am now looking for someone who also lost a parent when they were young, about 20-27 Id think and would like to talk/exchange about it via Email. Just share some experience with me.

I lost my father when I was 21 to cancer. I am now 26, so some time has passed but of course, it still has its effects on me.

I think its different losing a parent when you are not really fully grown-up yourself. In my case, at 21 I was "practically" an adult, however, emotionally I wasnt and also I still lived at home, I was still studying.

I guess its different losing a parent as a child, as a teen, as an adult or when youre really on your way to being an adult. And that is what Id like to talk about among other things.

Losing my father at that age to me meant losing a sense of security, of direction, safety, guidance and it also meant gaining freedom I wouldnt have had otherwise.

So if anyone also lost a parent not really being fully grown-up themselves, Id be happy to talk with them about it

Just send me an Email via the site.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
