When you suffer the loss of a pet, it is always a really hard time. One of the worst things you can do is suffer through the loss alone. Suffering amplifies all of your emotions, and loneliness plays a huge role in those emotions. When you are alone, you don't have anyone to step in and encourage you or relate with you. You are left to your own devices, and the results of that could be disastrous.
This is why pet loss support groups exist. They are a lot of people who have been through exactly what you have been through. They loved their pet just as much as you did, and they miss them just as much as you do. It may be hard to believe that, but it is true. People who have suffered the loss of a pet will be able to understand what you are going through. They can help you deal with your emotions.
Pet loss support groups exist all around the country, so it should not be too hard to find one. Look for one online that is close to you, and at least try it out. This could be a great opportunity for you to make some new friends, and talk in a safe place about your struggle with losing your pet. Give yourself a break from the loneliness, and try this out for at least a month. You may find that it’s the best, and most healthy, choice you made during this time of pain.
