This section of Widowed Village is devoted to our Seasoned Widowed members. Soaring Spirits defines seasoned widowed as anyone who has been widowed more than five years.
After many years, the impact of being widowed on your daily life has likely greatly diminished. You may have created, and been actively living and enjoying, a new life that is different to the one you lived when your late spouse or partner was alive. Though life may be wonderful, the moments of missing your person (especially during specific milestones, rituals or seasons of life) may always be a part of your life. New love, new activities, new passions don’t wipe out the love you had before, and so an ongoing missing of your unique and beautiful person is normal–no matter how many years it has been since they died.
Access to a supportive community, like the one available through Soaring Spirits, can provide both comfort and hope as you remember, rebuild, and celebrate all the love in your life, including the special love you have for the person who died. This page is full of resources designed specifically for this time of widowhood. We want you to know that you are not alone, and that in Soaring Spirits you’ve found a community that will walk with you through all the years ahead.
