My boyfriends father passed away a little more than a month ago and I'm just looking for some help on how I can do my best to help him with the loss and the healing process. About 2-3 weeks after his father passed away he was acting normal, at least around me, and I thought his recovery was doing well. The past few days though he's been pretty depressed and not his usual self. Normally he's full of energy and very happy... Past few nights he's been going to bed early and waking up late, only to be "tired" during the day and take naps during the day on the couch. I try to be there for him, let him snuggle up with me, cry on my shoulder if he has to...I dunno how I should be acting though. When he goes to bed early should I let him be alone and me stay out here until I want to go to bed or should I hop into bed after... I try to be nice as possible, let him choose where to eat and just simple things like that, but it hurts me to see him so sad and I want to help him. I know being alone is part of the grieving process and everyone needs "alone time", but is too much alone time bad?
