Dealing with Feelings of Survivor’s Guilt?
“I’ll never be able to shake the guilt I feel about his death. Maybe it’s because of the trauma one faces when someone dies so young. Maybe it’s because I had two family members pass shortly after he did. What I do know is that you cope.”
Survivor’s guilt is a feeling I am very familiar with. It can be a difficult thing to understand, sit with, and carry with us. I appreciate William’s vulnerability in discussing this and it provided a feeling of catharsis as I read his thoughts.
Have you experienced survivor’s guilt? How do you cope with it when it happens?
