Glad to see there will be a turning point. Happy to know you got there.
Glad to hear. Keep looking forward. How wonderful to find a place of peace. My Dan passed away June of 2018 and I try to be the way I know he would want me to be. I am still trying to put him first, but some days it is still difficult to keep positive. Most days are pretty good now.
1st, Happy Birthday I pray it was a good one. I'm so encouraged by you moving forward in your life. It's been 6 months since Harry transition and I have good and bad days. I will definitely check out your podcast since it's always good to listen to someone who knows how I feel.
God Bless you Good luck with your new venture
Dear Finding Hope:
I am only 8 weeks into this and my birthday is in 2 weeks, his will be in 6 weeks. I feel like I just go through the motions everyday and I am very sad. I am not looking forward to my birthday. We usually go away for 5 days. I cancelled it because I did not want to go and it will be the 1st week they are open with limitations.Thank you for posting that there is hope. Happy Belated Birthday
Weemunk, Thanks so much for your post. It is so nice to hear when grief starts to transform for those of us dealing with our losses. Wishing you all the best as you create your New Life. Here's a quote that has helped me quite a bit "No one can go back and start a New Beginning, but anyone can start today and make a New Ending" Happy Belated Birthday and sending good thoughts as you move forward
The most important part of grieving is yielding to what your heart feels combined with what you know is your truth. Every person is different and it must be understood that grief at losing a marital spouse does not ever follow a set time table! You are not "better" or "braver", "smarter" " more in touch with reality", "more aware or " more religious" etc. if you grieve a short time nor are you in any way any of those things if your grief takes a long time. All of us are uniquely different! Never compare yourself and think you are right or wrong in your grief journey because if it is right for you than it is right. No one can ever answer for another how long grief at losing your marriage partner takes because they do not and can not know!
Reading your comment gives me hope. Today is a good day, I am sad...yes, but I can manage and be more productive than just sitting around crying, feeling the world will swallow me. This is something to look forward too. I will always miss my honey bear. He was the kindest man I’ve had ever known. I owe him to keep on living, I promised him that much. For now, the grief is too fresh, but I have hope now.
