It’s been said that ‘lonely’ is not a powerful enough word to describe widowhood. Loneliness, isolation, social isolation…for many widowed people these are parts of the reality of widowed life. The powerful feeling of emptiness that follows the death of our spouse or partner can be one of the most painful experiences of our widowed life.
The desire to avoid that empty feeling and the aloneness of widowed life can lead us to make decisions that may not be in our best interest. Learning to be okay alone is not a skill that is often taught in our culture. Honestly examining our feelings around loneliness may not be easy, but that discussion can be life changing. So, let’s talk about loneliness. Action is the greatest answer to loneliness. Inspired, you will leave this workshop with a tool kit of insight, understanding, easy to implement strategies and with a few new friends a long the way.
