When we are in a relationship we help each other out with various tasks. It is just normal to share the daily duties like financial tasks, taxes, driving, grocery shopping etc...
One of my clients told me that her husband was the one that would always drive them to appointments and outings.
When he died two years ago she was somewhat stranded in her house, living in a rural community with almost no public transit.
She was lucky that she had a friend that would go grocery shopping with her or take her to doctors appointments. But she also felt that she could not impose on her friend all the time and so stayed home a lot of times.
She just told me that she bought a second-hand car six months ago and is now mobile again. I’m sure it took lots of courage to buy the car and being in the drivers seat again. Although I had nothing to do with it, I feel so proud of her. (You know who you are and I cheer for you! smile)
There are so many smaller and bigger steps that you have to take when you lose a loved one. Which tasks did you have to take on after your loved one died?
To find a new way to step out into the world takes all your courage and strength.
I bow to you for taking that step every day.
Love and blessings,
