172.0 Letting Go to Move Forward: How to Handle Crossroad Moments after Loss.



Walking through grief will be the hardest thing you ever do – for many reasons including losing your identity because you can no longer by the you – you were before your loved one died; or not knowing how to live a life different than the one you have lived for years or what you had expected to live with them.  Also, the loss will never leave you.  This is important because first, I don’t want to freak you out thinking that it will never get better – it will.  But this is important in what we are talking about when it comes to crossroads moments after loss.

And before I get into what I want to share, please do not make any life-altering decisions for at least the first year. Your life has been altered and so has your brain because of grief. The brain is changed in grief, and it needs time to heal as well.  So, to say you are not in your right mind in the first year of grief is pretty accurate.  Because of that, no big financial decisions, selling the house decisions, relationship decisions should be made right now. If you have to sell property or move, then you have to but if you don’t have to – don’t.

I have gotten a lot of questions about dating recently.  The questions have been specifically from women who have lost their husbands. However, beginning new relationships for anyone going through grief also applies here.

Today – the question is – how long should I wait until I date again?


WORD of the Week   Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. 6 Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. 7 Don’t assume that you know it all.  Proverbs 3:5-7 message
