It has been exactly one year to the day since my grandmother past. While I am lucky to have my parents and brother still with me, I am the only one in family who is currently exploring an observant lifestyle. In the past year I have not been able to understand the mysteries of dying, parting, etc... Furthermore, I have often been critical of people who use religion to pass judgement on others and not live their own lives. The point of this is rant is, I haven't been able to open the siddur since my grandmother died. I feel alone, empty, angry, scared, depressed and the worst part about it is I can't remember what it is like to be happy. Does anyone know what this is like? (A lot of I's in there so it probably means I am selfish too).

First of all, welcome to the site. Second, it is very common for people to feel depressed after the recent loss of a loved one. There are bereavement groups out there if that is something of interest to you. You are of course welcome to share your feelings and questions here, as we are all on this journey together. I was struck by what you said about losing your grandparent, but also feeling alone due to exploration of Judaism. Feel free to post publically, or you can send me a private message.
