Hello @cwattblkhwk,

How are you coping? It has been sometime since you posted, and I am wondering if you have support around you to help you through this time of grief. Losing your best friend… I am soo sorry you had had to go through this without getting the chance to experience the big life events together that you mentioned such as getting married, having children. The way life works out doesn’t seem to make much sense sometimes, does it? I really like what @vmmax mentioned about holding your best friend in your heart but in a different way now. It may be helpful to think of other ways to process our perspective on the grief. What we anticipated for our life compared to the way it actually happens, well there is no choice but to adapt a different way of thinking in order to move forward. I hope time can heal even just a little bit for you. I trust that you will feel your best friend still with you in spirit. There aren’t really any words that I can think of that could help you right now but please know we are here for you, to listen and to allow you the space you need to process. Please find some time each day to practice self-care. Here is a link from Beyond Blue that might help if you ever find this tricky;
