Glass half full
I lost my husband 18 months ago leaving me a 34 year old widow with a 3 year old and 1 year old to bring up alone. We found out that my husband was ill 3 years before he died. He was a very brave fighter but he increasingly drew into himself and his illness was very difficult to cope with. When he died I changed my life completely as I was ready to move on. I feel guilty about this everyday but I needed it to happen for my young boys. I have now been living in my new house for 8 months and 5 months ago started a new relationship. I feel so guilty about this too and am so convinced it can’t work because I am still grieving!! However I know for a fact I am further down my grief journey since meeting my new partner and that we are healing each other as he has been very hurt in the past. That’s not to say that with 4 kids between us things are far from rosy! Its hard work but I am determined to work it out.
