This TikTok Challenge Is Making People Cry After Seeing People Recreate Pics With Their Late Loved Ones (20 Pics)

Coping with the loss of a loved one is probably one of the hardest things humans can ever do. In fact, one study suggests that out of 200 consultations with GPs, a third of which were of psychological origin, 55 were identified as resulting from loss. It hits hard, changes lives, and takes years, if not forever, to heal.

But some people have found a unique shelter for their grief online. A new series of videos have been circulating around on TikTok showing people recreating pictures from the past. In emotional snaps, many are struggling to contain their tears as old images with their loved ones who are no longer among us come back to life. The captions that read “I miss you every day” remind us just how powerful and time-defying love can be.

We reached out to Kylei Wang, the woman behind this emotional TikTok video, who shared her story with us.

This particular TikTok came to her through inspiration from other creators who also used this same sound to recreate pictures with their lost loved ones. “I had recently lost my grandpa about 2 months prior to making my video, so I wanted to do something to honor him and share with the rest of the world,” said Kylei.

A college student in her junior year, Kylei told us that making the TikTok was a bittersweet experience. “The feelings from losing him are definitely still raw so recreating a picture from the last time I ever got to see him was emotional for me,” she confessed.

Kylei said that losing her grandpa during the coronavirus pandemic was particularly hard because “I was not able to travel to see him for the last time. A lot of me felt separated from my emotions and especially in the beginning, it didn’t quite feel real.”

The hardest part for Kylei was to accept his passing, but talking to her family and friends helped to cope with the grief. But she managed to remain strong and hopeful. “Knowing that he’s in a better place also eases my conscious. I also believe that someday I’ll be able to see him again,” she concluded in emotional words.
