After a loved one passes away, it’s normal to have unresolved feelings (they can often be both positive and negative). Do you have something you’d like to say to him? Writing it down in a Father’s Day card, in a journal or on a simple piece of paper is a useful way to work through those feelings. If you’re scared of someone else reading it or it’s overwhelming to see your true thoughts written down, place the letter in a fire pit the next time you’re out camping, destroy it under running water, or bury it. The simple act of getting your feelings out on paper can be extremely therapeutic, even if you feel better destroying the evidence afterward.
