Bad Thoughts: Lost a Loved One
Hi, guys. A few days ago I lost my dog of many years. It has made me very sad. At first, I just mourned the loss, but now random bad thoughts are creeping in of all kinds. What I hate about them is some seem so sick, even about my dog. I have found some examples on the web, but for some reason they are only temporarily comforting.
The reason is that everytime I find someone who has thought of something similar to me, I keep telling myself that I can think of something even worse. I then must find someone who has thought this even worse thought. It's like a neverending cycle.
I'm wondering if anyone knows any good books or articles to read about this or has any other insight?
