A new study found that people who have had the experience of having a loved one’s body torn apart before their death can feel better, a little bit more connected to them and can enjoy their own lives more after death.
A report from the University of Chicago found that having a “lost family member” during their lifetimes can have a profound impact on a person’s life.
The study looked at the effect of the death of a family member on people’s wellbeing.
“It’s very common in the United States that families lose a loved member, and this can have long-term impacts on the lives of individuals,” study co-author Robert M. DePinho said in a statement.
“People who have experienced this death can experience a feeling of loss that can lead to feelings of isolation and isolation from others.”
The researchers looked at data from more than 3,200 people who had died from natural causes during their lifetime.
People who had a “loss family member,” who was killed before they had a child, reported feeling more connected and feeling a sense of belonging.
The researchers also found that those who had had a loss of a loved parent reported a greater sense of connectedness and a greater quality of life.
People were also more likely to feel a sense that they had an important role to play in the family, as well as feeling more satisfied with their lives.
“We found that loss of family members had a positive impact on well-being,” DePiro said.
“Our findings indicate that loss can have positive effects on well being.”
