Ok so last year I got a pet bird for my birthday and I named her cheeky u can tell I loved her very much and she was so young still when I got her but she passed away also last year and she was the best thing that ever happened to me and she really lived up to her name like she would open the door of her cage and and fly out and find me and she was just amazing and even tho it’s been over a year I just can’t get over her and it still really hurts and idk what to do
Hey @cheeky, welcome to ReachOut! I'm sorry to hear about your loss of Cheeky, I can relate to having pets pass away - it's really hard to take in, isn't it? They're such important parts of our lives! Have you tried reaching out to a friend or relative for support regarding this? We also have this article here that you might find helpful in reading. Sending virtual hugs along your way <3
Losing your first pet is really hard @cheeky, isn't it? I can imagine the pain you must be going through. It's great to hear that you've tried to alleviate this by talking and listening to music. Given that both ways have yet to stop the hurting, perhaps the next step is having a chat to a health professional like a school counsellor?
