Psychiatry & Psychology--General/Getting over grief


My father and I became estranged in 2005. Last year I found out he died in 2009. I never had the opportunity to talk with him or say good bye. I don't know where he is buried or ashes scattered. How do I find closure and stop thinking about how I wasn't good enough to him?

Hi Jennifer,
You may be left feeling guilt and low self-worth. Letting go is not easy. What do you imagine your father might say to you if he could? Maybe there is another loss of caring from father when he was alive.
