Default I need some advice

To the people who have grieved for a long period of time. Tell me some new things to do so I can move along with my life. I am staying busy and seeking counselling but is there anything else I can do to help me not think about it and go into crying fits.
I am ready to move on and enjoy life but when I take a step forward, I take two steps back. I sink into a severe depression and let my life fall downwards; I need a some good words from someone who has lost someone 10 to 20 years ago, and can give me a life lesson of how to make the next step in not looking back.

I am sorry for your loss. I lost my parents and it gets better because ofGOD helping me throughout.PRAYING AND RELYING ON GOD . I lost them a number of years ago , but the painis always there and holidaysand special daysand birthdays hurt. So you will get better, but it does not go back to party life, because at times you'll get a waveof sadness , missing them. On a daily basis you'll be ok , but things will trigger you. But yes you will get back on track. How old are you ? Do you pray ? Doyou have good friends who you can talk to ? oK TALK , JOHN

My Grandma died 8/8/05 & my Grandpa die 3/12/08. It was sudden, totally unexpected when Grandma passed & it does get easier as time goes by. This forum has helped me alot. I try to keep busy. My daughter & grandson live with me & I wasnt happy to be a grandmother @ 38 yrs old, he makes everything better. He's a yr old now and my life would be so empty without him. My only regret is that they didnt get to meet him. I guess what I'm trying to say is keep busy and surround yourself with people who love you. As I said this forum has helped alot. I think its what helped me the most. Talking with people who know what you are going thru really helps.
