James asked 13 years ago

Hello, my life started rough with my father murdering my mother than sitting beside her as the house burnt up around them, I was nine then, 28 now, but understood and was told exactly what happened. A few weeks ago my older and closest brother shot himself. I have been dealing with many emotions and I have realized that if I am to move on I must forgive. I am not deeply religious but believe in religion . I need someone outside of my family to talk to but I am torn between a therapist and a preacher. Thank you for your time and concern.

Naturally you will experience a range of emotions with the death of a loved one, and it may help you to know that reaching out for support is a significant aspect of the healing process.
