Building relationships after a loss.

After losing my twin brorther a few months ago, it is needless to say nothing has really been the same, however aside from the more common grief experiences, am often finiding myslef wondering if in a midst of my loss I am not neglecting my partner.

My partner is wondeful but perhaps i find it difficult to open about how i feel, especially on the days where i need more support that usual. I feel like after this loss a bit of me is missing and without trying to be selfish it does feel like we are growing apart.

So I guess I am wondering if people have experienced this and how to move past it whilst maintaining the connection with my other half.

Thank you for taking the time to read this
