What is the definition of time? They said it is a measurable period during which an action, process, or condition exists or continues.
One of the most common questions people going through grief ask is how long will I feel this way?
Oh, how I wish there was an easy answer to this question. You can look everywhere for an answer and find something different.
To be honest it all comes down to you. What I mean by this is you will be the deciding factor as to how long it takes to feel less pain and sorrow.
For me personally, it took over two years to get to the point where I could comfortably welcome a new little one into my life. And to be able to look back on my loss and focus more on the love than the pain. But I have also known people who get a new pet a month after their loss – and it works out wonderfully for them.
So, you can see there is no right or wrong answer to this question. Do what feels right to you. Allow your feelings to be as they are. Do not stuff them down, feel them, allow them to be.
One day you wake up and things will feel different. I promise you. I don’t know when, everyone walks this journey at a different pace, but you will get there.
