Finding yourself widowed and perhaps living on your own for the first time in a long while and getting used to a new way of life without your late partner, will be hard. Then, suddenly being unable to socialise with friends and family because of the current situation, means there is the potential for the grieving process to become all the more difficult.
For some, forming friendships does not come easy. We need to get to know our friends and understand their strengths and weaknesses, and this can take time.
At some point during our lifetime, most of us are likely to experience the loss of someone we love. Losing a partner can bring fears for our future and how we might cope on our own.
