Below is a Facebook post from a year ago as I reflected on friendships after losing my husband 6 months before. I’m sharing with you and now 18months on, I’m still riding my emotional rollercoaster but my words are as true today as it was last year. In this year I’ve made amazing new friends and had the support of friends who really understand my way of dealing with life after loss. I can recall many posts here that spoke about this situation so I hope my words, which as as relevant today, helps you.
‘Some people like to live life as a drama, even joining in with another’s. Just so they know, I’m not living a drama, I’m living the life I have been given. It’s a healthy one, in body and mind. I am a strong woman, always have been. Those who know me won’t be surprised, those who are getting to know me, don’t worry about me, I hope I inspire you to face the most difficult challenges life can give you. Within you, you will find your inner strength’
