Our expert says:
Grandparents are old, and thus more likely to die even while we are young. But yes, you have had more than your share of bereavements within recent years. But you are no angel of death, and I'm sure there are many other people you know who are very much alive and well. What is more realistic is the reaction you describe, in which you hesitate to love someone one, for fear of later losing them. As my friend Colin Murray-Parkes used to say ( he wrote some excellent stuff about bereavement ) grief is the price we pay for love. And I would add -- And it is a price well worth paying, however painful it is. DO see a personal counsellor to help you work through all this perhaps impacted grief, and to become free to love again, however cautiously.
