I guess this question may be for the folks that have been on this journey for a long time....Someone made a comment in another post regarding being "finished with grief", and it made me think - How do we know when we are "finished"? I've been on this train wreck for less than a year. Some days I'm ok. Most days I just pass through the daily movements of life. I miss him terribly. Can't imagine that there will be a day that I won't. But when will I know that I'm "finished" - ready to move on? And what exactly does that mean? I guess I'm just trying to figure out if the way I feel right now is the way it's always going to be. I'm surviving. I laugh, I cry, I find small moments of joy ( mostly with my pets). But the ache is still there. The loneliness. Is this all I should expect for the rest of my life?
