Its been 10months and while I don't cry as much and have accepted he is gone what remains is this need to find a foundation and to build a life for myself without him. I go through the motions...joined groups, met widows, spend time with family, etc. etc. but  what remains is a fragment of what my life was like with him. I died with him. Now  I want to carry on and find peace and a measure of contentment but where to start...what will make my life feel like it makes sense? I do not know but I refuse to give up. Each day I will continue the journey. I read somewhere that there is no path...your feet make the path. So, I keep on experimenting with what feels good or is meaningful. I pray I will know who I am in the future. This is so tiring.

Hi Hope.   It has been 3 years since the death of my Husband.  I am now in a place where I am feeling peaceful and content with my life.   I am still in a changing process.   I am still learning new things about myself.   I think that our journey is a continuing one of finding a new life without our loved one.   Keep traveling your path and do the things that feel right to you.   It is a tiring process but one that we unfortunately have to experience.   The number one thing is to take care of yourself, both physically and mentally.  Be patient with yourself.

I am right there too...11 months in a couple days. I sometimes feel anxious to find that peace and new life. Then I check myself, what will be, will be. So I try to be patient and carry on the next day.
