I'm new, need a friend to talk to, share stuff with. I'm recently widowed with a 2 year old son. I'm just lonely. I have a lot of friends at home mind you, but sometimes I find easier to talk to someone new. Wierd huh?
It's such a blessing for me to find this site. Y'all made my b-day special. Just to see how many people care and understand is a great feeling. I hope that I can be of help to someone out there who needs to talk and listen.
Thanks again for everything, I hope that y'all have a great day!
I totally understand what you are talking about. Your friend, while well intentioned I'm sure, really has no clue how hard it is to get over the death of a spouse. It is QUITE different than a break up or divorce. It took me over a year to stop thinking of him constantly all day, every day. Especially when you have a little face ( or two!) to look into that reminds you so much of him. Just give yourself time to grieve. Dont rush into anything, that would be my advice. Beleive me, I KNOW how lonely it is. I don't think starting a romantic relationship is the best idea yet, but thats just MY opinion. However, It definately doesn't hurt to have lots of friends. I would be thrilled if you would consider me one.
Thanks for the support. I really appreciate it. My b-day's coming up this weekend (2-6) and it will my first without Randy. I've been dreading it. It's been 10 months since he passed but I miss him the most now. A close friend of mine told me last weekend that I need to find someone new. She said it's time to stop mourning and find a new love. It's not as easy as she thinks. I don't want a replacement. Nobody will ever be able to replace Randy but I'm willing to start new. I just don't know how to go about it. Does anyone understand what I'm talking about?
I know exactly where you are coming from. I lost my husband six years ago. My daughter was two and my son 4 years old at the time. I know its scary and overwhelming, and It IS easier to talk to strangers. Soooo, if you every want to talk, I'm listening.
