Days March On

by Allison

Been a while since I've contributed but I do keep track of this site. I am saddened by the new posts of loss yet I continually celebrate the human spirit that somehow triumphs over death. We are to be commended for our resilience. Reaching out in forums like this shows our desire to carry on despite the overwhelming catastrophe of our loss. It's been 22 months now since Kent left me. My days are busy but I still agonize over his loss. Coming to terms with life alone is a daily lesson. I have discovered that doing what I want is therapeutic. I face life with a different outlook. My new mantra is "Gone through the worst. I can handle anything now!" And thankfully I do. For those of you on the early stage of this sad journey, please take hope that somehow, life will be better. Take good care of yourselves as the days march on. That they do.....

Inner strength
by: Alan

Thank You so much for your post, Allison, I've often thought the same thing about being able to handle anything. It's been 19 months since I lost my Donna and there are still days that I wonder when and if this roller coaster ride will end. Every little triumph that only " we " would understand brings me a step closer to the realization that life can indeed be worth living again. About a month ago I went through Donna's clothes and donated them to Goodwill. It was one of the hardest things I've had to do in my life, but for me it was a huge step. We now have to learn everything over again looking through these new eyes that have cried rivers, with hearts that have been broken and battered, but with a new spirit that is stronger, wiser, and in the long run hopefully more compassionate.

People like you, Allison, have helped me more than I could ever put into words, Thank You for sharing your thoughts!

Allison THANK YOU! for taking the time to make contact with us all with an UPDATE to where you are now after Grief. You are so right. Grief does have a process. We have a journey to take in the Healing Process through Grief. The Healing from Grief does leave us with a new INNER FREEDOM that we didn't realise we had. We however can only find it after we lose the love of our lives. Almost as if He is guiding us along this path of life. We can gather strength from our past with our partner that will carry us on through the rest of our life, as we honour him and give Respect to the memories of that past life as we embrace our new life. None of us would have wanted to take this journey but we had no say in this. We had no choice but to go in life so we are honouring the one we lost and embracing each other as we go on. We hold hands with each other like a CHAIN that will connect with each other as we share our grief and our Healing and moving forward. I wish everyone Peace and Comfort on this journey of grief as we share with each other and lift each other up during those hard times when we can't go on. What you offered us Allison is ointment for our wounds. God go with you through the rest of your life and give you every Happiness and Safety.
