She needs time to grieve. There isn't much you can do. If she is letting you in her room, you could just go in and sit with her. Don't say anything just sit there. That way your sister will know she is not alone, without forcing her to do something she isn't ready for.

You may need to give her time to grieve. Bereavement is intensely personal and sometimes we just need to be alone. I'm very sorry for her loss, and for your own distress.

Defientely :) my boyfriend still doesn't ever text me first and we've been dating for two years. He doesn't like phones, even quit for a year using his phone. But I'm saying he believes in face to face conversations because you know the emotion behind what their saying. A text could be read a million … Read more

Yes! I love that idea! When I first met my boyfriend our dates were at bars and clubs, coming home super drunk every weekend night. We did this because we were too nervous to make a conversation so we drank to feel more comfortable. Eventually we stopped and would go out on proper dates but … Read more

As a girl who goes to the gym everyday, I have never felt more confident with my body. I was told to slow down because muscles are for men, but I don't do it to get others opinions, I work out for myself and I'm extremely proud of how far I've come, even if I've … Read more
