Do grief triggers always have to make me sad?
I have several grief triggers:
Food - ham and cheese sandwiches
Times of the year - the month of April
Heirlooms - a thermos and sofa
All of these remind me in one way or another, but do the all still make me sad.
While I can avoid eating certain foods, I can't stop April from coming every year, but I can use some things that have been passed down to me to remind me of good times I had with my father. Those items make me feel like my father is still with me, and that gives me strength.
