My Final Self-Reflection

 I have really enjoyed contributing to this blog, but now it is time to move on and giver others a chance to share.   I thought over time I would find other widows and widowers to connect with, but it hasn’t really happened.  However, as I reflect over my life, it makes sense because my life experience has always been outside the norm—I have always felt isolated from society which is what made my wife so special.  She gave me a deep, deep connection with her for 15 years, and now, I have this deep, deep connection with my daughter.

     Overall, I need to stop looking for people to connect with in regards to my grief because no one can relate to my expeinces 100 ercent.  The best I can do is find different people to connect with different parts of my life—no one will relate to every part of who I am.


I wish all of the best with your grief!

    I wish you all the best, and hope that you are able to find people to connect with in regards to grief. I found a community of widows that helped quite a bit when I was newly widowed. I think it is harder for men, but hope that you will reach out for, and find, connection.

    I have enjoyed your insight over the time you’re written and wish only the best for you and your daughter. You and your wife sound like you had a very strong relationship and I hope you and your daughter will continue that family connection.
