So no one told you life was gonna be this way

Today, my fiancé/son’s father’s death anniversary is in a few days. I asked my closest friends if they’d hang with me so I could try and keep my mind off it, and so I wouldn’t be alone (my son will be with fiancé’s parents). They couldn’t be bothered and want to go away for the weekend instead. Without me. FML

first of all I'm so sorry for your loss. and I'm sorry you have to be alone, what about doing something to honor him? like write him a letter or a poem, light a candle, go and get one of his fav foods and enjoy it while thinking of him, do something for yourself, visit his grave if you can and have a good cry if you need to. I know this won't bring him back or make your grieving process any easier but I hope this helps at least a little bit, I don't know you but I'm sending you lots of love today 💗

Not every culture commemorates the anniversary of the passing of a loved one. My wife is Jewish and she does. That seemed odd and morbid to me as I was raised as a Christian and unless the deceased was a real A-hole, their death was considered to be a time of their “going back home to be with God.” I tell you this to point out that different cultures and religions handle the death of a loved one differently. Nobody has a lock on the best way to do it - Just be aware that people deal with grief and separation differently depending on their personality, culture and beliefs.

I don't think this has anything to do with a commemoration but more like "someone dear to me is gone, please I just don't to be alone on this day".
