Here's a new one in GRIEF Posted July 11, 2013 Why do we play back in our heads the end days of our loved ones? Why does it seem like we don't nearly play back the good times in our heads as much? I think the reason why I tend to replay those last days is because I now have the benefit of hindsight. I did not at that time when I was trying to take in SO MUCH. In a way I feel like I am still trying to work through it all. Because I never worked all the way through it then.
