Often after our spouse has died, we go looking for another relationship – one that appears to have everything that the previous one had. Because this new relationship appears to solve all of your problems, you hold onto it tightly. You may believe that the new partner is the one who is making you happy. But it’s really your own state of mind while dating that either makes you happy or not. Just be watchful that the new relationship isn’t a “rebound” out of loneness or fear of being alone. To find someone again to share your life with is a blessing but only if you are in the right place of mind. If not you could find yourself in a situation that is more unbearable than being by yourself.
