Then and now
by M Mack
Tomorrow will be 3 years and 1 month since I lost the love of my life. Tonight I'm reflecting on how I have progressed as I read your posts after a long break. I don't comment, just reflect on all the pain and support for those who are new to the loss of a loved one. I can tell you that the time passes with good days and bad and your grieving is individual. I then began reading my old posts and only then did I see how much I have moved forward. I cry less and laugh more and found ambition that's been lost. I also realized how much I held on to the warm and kind responses of those also going through the same stages as I was. This site has taken me through the journey of my darkest hours and out the other end. Although you never forget the love you lost, you will breath again. To everyone who is guided and comforted here on this site, I wish you well and that your recovery will come in due time as mine has. I will always love my Raymond the love of my life. God Speed to all those new and old to grief.
