I was very a conversation with another widower about this "moving on" business. Many of us may have found ourselves in despair or frustrated with ourselves or people around us because according to "them" we are not moving forward.
Well, we are moving. We are orbiting in another demension then "them" but we are moving. I definately can say I'm not moving along side many if any of "them" but I am mvong along side with many of you.
My orbit looks very different then "their" orbit. Oh, yes, I've been in their orbit, however none of "them" have entered into my orbit.
So, "they" would not know what it's like to move within my orbit.
In discussing our orbits, my friend likened to a commercial where everyone is moving rally fast, except this one person who is moving but very slowly......but they are moving.
Another analogy my friend had was interesting and I resonated with it.
It's like we have been rocketed out to space where we are orbiting around the world watching from afar. We might begin to reenter, gradually, but not to fast for fear we could crash and burn!
So, it's ok if you find yourself just orbiting......you're still moving......it might be sideways, or baclwards at times, a little forward or just drifting....but in your orbit...you are moving.
And when you feel you can begin to reenter into this worlds atmosphere reenter at your own spend.
