It's been 6 1/2 months since my live in boyfriend died. They say we all grieve differently and we go through different stages before acceptance...but at one point does time really heal this wound? Now I know it will always be a part of my life and that it won't be the same...eventually I will just remember the good memories. But honestly, I've spent these past 6 months trying my best to cope with his sudden loss and I have had an extremely hard time opening up to friends/family about how bad I'm doing....I think I can't get over the idea that i will live in torment for the rest of my life. Does anyone have suggestions on how to go about getting more closure? I'm planning to try a new therapist but I really feel like I may never have some of the good qualities that defined my character before he passed away. I'm lacking the courage & strength I need. My "fighter" instinct isn't present and I just wish some could suggest what's been the most helpful on this terribly difficult journey.
