Clearlyundefined12221 karma

I have lost almost every close family member (mom, dad, brother, favorite aunt and uncle, and now my only remaining uncle has cancer). I started losing them at 16 and I’m 31 now. I lead a mostly happy life, but I know I have serious issues with letting people in emotionally.

Sometimes during holidays or anniversaries of their deaths I break down and weep uncontrollably. But then I suddenly stop after only a minute or two of crying. I don’t have control over my grief. Is there a way for me to process it and “get it out”? It seems like most days I can’t really process it, but I know it’s there.
