I am greatly upset after I lost my pet cat

Dear Diana,
In fact it was one of my neighbours who drove his car over the cat. After this incident, I have been greatly upset. The person who drove over my cat hasn’t apologised yet and maybe that’s why I’m not at peace.

Dear Sabiha,
I can understand your loss as you were greatly attached to your pet cat. You are angry as well as upset. Perhaps your neighbour is not an animal lover so does not realise the worth of the loss. Remember time heals all pain. Now you are grieving, but after a while you will overcome the pain. There is no point being angry with anyone as your pet will not come back. I am sure over time you will be better. Why don’t you get another pet to overcome the grief? 

Diana will solve it!
