Being alone can be scary; you once had someone to help you with decision making, problem solving, enjoying little moments - now it is gone. You sit and wonder, what now, what do I do, who is going to help me? The expression of pick yourself up and dust yourself off, is not something you want to hear nor is it something you feel capable of doing.
When we reflect on the what ifs, what now, we can manage our thoughts to what life was like when we were alone; what were our dreams, what did we want for our lives and then we start to recall those words of support from our partner that believed in our capabilities when we did not. We start to rebuild on those words; that is your encouragement to begin the rebuilding process. Use what you know, what you've learned as vehicle to move forward and embrace what is to come. I can tell you from my own experience, this has brought me to where I am today and I know spiritually by husband is with me, every step of the way, he believed in me when I didn't believe in myself, and I have accomplished more than what I ever imagined I could. Rebuilding is scary, yes, but it a beautiful journey. ~~ Cammie
