Thankyou Jan for your reflected wisdom. I am going through an intense time where I am experiencing the resurgence of grief. I lost my soul mate partner of 22 years in 2018. I feel that I’m only now experiencing the permancy of that loss. I have a number of tried and true tools to use when I feel the intense loneliness, and that out of sync with the rest of the world feelings.
But I feel stale. Heightened by moving interstate and having to start again in so many ways. Retirement also creates so much time!
I feel I’m in between. Posting helps me process. And reading your post tells me I’m not alone! Thankyou.
