      Thank you for your comment! I’m saddened to hear about your soulmate’s recent death and appreciate your vulnerability here. One of the things I’ve learned throughout the past 11 years as a grieving heart is the importance of speaking about your pain. I understand the belief that it will be burdensome to others, yet challenge you to share. Vulnerability is often met with compassion, if we allow it. I’ll be holding you in my thoughts and prayers!

  2. Very helpful. My loss was almost ten months ago, thought I could continue with this absent “friend’ but not sure now. There were problems before my sister died. You shed a lot of light on this topic, thank you.

      I’m so grateful my post resonated with you, Ann! Thank you for sharing about your loss. It’s difficult to name the challenges associated with friendship loss amid other significant loss(es).

    This really encouraged me and enlightened me at the same time. Although I have not loss any as a result of death. I have had several relationship “sizzle” out which have been honest with myself and identified them as losses! Thank you for your ability to be able to help others who need to re-find there way.

    This message was received and it filled my heart.

    Even before I lost my Dad I knew some people in my circle were shady.

    Then when he died it was total proof.

    I rather have a handful of friends than a group of people who waste my time.

    Thanks for sharing your truth!

      You’re welcome! Grief raises the surface many truths, including those within friendships. It sounds like you’ve identified your social circle. I’m happy for you!
