Hi Charlotteelsie,

I thank you for your post, I just came home from an oversees vacation which was awesome, enlightening, and extremely heart breaking at the same time.  I visited family and went with friends as it was their bucklist. Both my family and my friends at different times to proceed to discuss how I should move forward...my friends told me I talk about my husband and should not talk about him so much as I am living in the past. I let them know that he has died and that how can I live in the past if he is not here.  Also, I told them that I will continue to always talk about my husband since he would have loved everything we saw and did on the vacation. I explained to them that it makes me happy to remember the wonderful times and that I am learning to walk with my grief, but will not every get over it or better. 

It makes me sad that people who mean well will not ever understand what we are really going thorough.  I have found that I must tell people exactly what I need from them as well as what I need them not to do.  They have no  idea the pain we feel every moment of everyday. 

I am so thankful for the Widowed Village as I feel it is a safe and kind place to express what I really feel and with those who really do "just get it".

Take care and never stop your path through this journey your way because it is the right way.
