When you feel judgedMar 31, 2023
You have likely been on the receiving end of judgement about your grief journey. It can be an undertone or gentle hint, or an outright intervention. It often sounds like:
- You should be seeing someone by now.
- You need to be moving on already.
- It’s time to get back to your old self.
- You need to let him go.
It’s likely well-intended, and a little self-serving, because if you’re better, then they can feel better, too.
It’s also the opposite of what you really need.
Because for most widowed people, there is an ongoing internal dialogue about how you’re doing it wrong. How you’re failing grief. How your brain shouldn’t still be so foggy.
The pain of losing your person is profound on its own, and then you pile on extra layers of self-judgment. And add to that, the judgement coming from friends and family.
It’s all so heavy.
- The truth is that seeing someone new fixes nothing.
- There is no such thing as moving on.
- There is no former you to get back to.
- And letting him go is not required. Ever.
