One thing I learned years ago with the death of a friend's husband, is not to continuously overload others with our grief. By that, I mean do not let this subject matter be the only thing we talk about..all the time; if we do, it will consume our own life, and friends may shun us. If you find this happening to you, please get professional counselling. As hard as it may seem at times, life does go on; this is what our family, friends and good neighbors want for us...as well as do our 'lost' ones. Live your life to its fullest. Yet, never hide or be ashamed of your grieving times; this is not expected of you.
