Re: How do I help My boyfriend from coping with the loss of his mother?
Everyone gets over a death differently. Your supporting him is all you can do. He has to move on, by himself, in his own way and time.
I am concerned for you though, with his going to Brazil to 'find himself." How long is going to be gone? It sounds to me that it might have been his way of breaking up with you. Hope I am wrong. You need to stop being there for someone who just ups and leaves you. I really don't think that it is healthy for you to be hanging around waiting for this guy to come back. If I were you, I would move on too.
Putting all your eggs in his basket is bound to get them broken, along with your heart.
Wishing you the best!
