It’s 7 weeks since my husband passed away how am I ment to carry on and do Xmas alone there was only me and him we had only been married 7 weeks I do talk to some of our friends but they all have families and are busy over Xmas with there own lives
I’m so sorry for your tragic loss, it will still be so raw. I’m 10 weeks in from losing my husband and I’ve decided just to spend the day at home on my own as I dont want to be part of anyones celebrations. I will raise a glass to him from my sofa.
Just do what feels right for you
Do u not have family
No I have no family
i lost my devoted hubby few months ago …i cannot imagine how im gonna get through xmas im just having close family stay with me .however if i had nobody i think i would go to the soup kitchens or lunch cafes to help the poor and needy and aged that were struggling …but its personal choice. grieving is as im finding, challenging enough so sometimes you want to just be quiet and safe at home …dont put pressure on yourself though as you dont have to do it if you feel you cannot , just take each day one at a time thoughts ,hugs and love sent xx
That sounds right for you this year just take it as it comes nothing else we can do.thetes touch emphasis on xmas day after all its not all about eating abd drinking there is another meani g
Xmas will come and go like any other day and before lo g it will be the spring and you do kot know what the future will bring
@Leigh I will be spending my first Xmas alone after losing my husband 5 months ago. Like you I have no idea what the day has in store and I just hope it passes quickly. I hear friends making arrangements with family and no doubt on Xmas day will see neighbours welcoming families into their homes all jolly.
I’m sure there will be many others in our position and it is a sad and difficult time but we will get through somehow.
