“But when I do feel all the strength go out of me, and I fall to my knees beside the table and I think, I cry, then, or at least I want to, and everything inside me screams for just one more kiss, one more word, one more glance, one more.”
― Veronica Roth, Allegiant
Grieving the Loss of a Spouse or Lifetime Partner
Nothing can really prepare you for the death of your spouse or lifetime partner. Nothing is going to take that pain away, but it is important to work out your grief and mourning. Sharing your feelings and thoughts with others here is a way to cope and make your pain more manageable.
No one can tell you how you should feel after your spouse or lifetime partner dies. There is no time limit on your grieving period. Be patient with yourself. You may feel like you are done with the pain, but your mind and body may not be. This is normal. Allow yourself to grieve, so that you can get through it in a healthy way.
You will now face life without your partner. You may question how in the world, life will go on, without your life partner? You will miss the closeness, the joint decision making , the life experiences you both have shared. There was a comfort level of living and sharing that became familiar to you.
You will be able to come back to facing life without your partner at your side. You will recreate a new life.
Begin your healing by sharing here with others that have also lost their spouse. You will find comfort and support with others having similar experiences.
