After the death of a loved one, life is forever changed. The Saturday movie night that you enjoyed with special friends is gone. You are now a single in a couple’s world. In the worst-case scenario, you could even be seen as a threat. There is nothing worse than having to leave a gathering of friends to go home alone to an empty house.
Most of us have experienced this feeling, understandably, because we are now single again, and the rest of our friends are still paired off as couples. Of course, friends will be kind and will try to include you in their activities, but the experience will not be the same.
Now that you are single again, the combination of old friends and good memories of other times makes, at times, for an empty feeling. It’s no wonder that sometimes we do feel uneasy in such circumstances. However, after a time you will, as I did, be able to share your wonderful memories with your new friends. We all have stories to tell, and it is good for us to share them.
