My dearest and closest friends including sisters and boyfriend want me to feel better....want me to be OK.....don't want to see me hurt or tearful or sad. It has only been 5 months since Evan passed. I gently tell them that I am adjusting, and it will take a life time. I appreciate their concern but am surprised and finding myself pulling away from them assuming they don't and can't understand. However, I need and love my friends and family. How to strike a balance? There is nothing they can do but love me and let me go through the grief. How do I explain this to them?
