I Can't stop thinking that my dad is gone because of me

It is not uncommon to feel that you caused the death even if in reality there is no way you caused the death. Sometimes it is a way to make sense of something that is so overwhelming and lets you feel helpless. If you take responsibility, it is a way to make sense of it. Also feeling that you caused it, is a way to let you not experience the anger you feel that he died. Instead you make him the one who is angry. Remember after a death of someone you love, having all kinds of feelings are common and everyone has them at different times. You are no different than many others who experience a loss of someone who you cared about.
