So when a partner dies, the grieving is not only for our beloved but also for the relationship itself. Each person’s experience of bereavement is different and unique.
To try and quantify an ‘average duration’ for grieving and recover is futile.
I recently met the mother of an acquaintance of mine in the park.
During our brief chat, she revealed quite a lot about herself – she explained how she had been in a very loving marriage for over 40 years until her husband died suddenly of a heart attack.
Within a year, she had become involved in a serious relationship with another man, something that she did not expect.
Does this mean she loved any less than if she still wore the mantle of grief?
For some of us this may be hard to fathom but moving on is a deeply personal experience and what feels right for one, may feel inappropriate for someone else.
I think the most important thing about ‘moving on’ is only to do it when it feels right for us.
