    Missing Her: How to Deal When the Feelings Refuse to Go Away

    Some days are better than others. Sometimes you can put on a brave face and go about your day like nothing is wrong. Other days, you sit and ponder why she is gone and try to figure out what will take away the pain of her absence.

    We know how hard it is to miss your partner so much, but you do not have to suffer in silence. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution for recovering from the loss of a loved one, there are ways to cope with the pain in ways that are both healthy and constructive.

    The first step is to accept the inevitable. Even if you cannot make sense of the current situation, it doesn’t mean that you should suppress or deny it. On the contrary, you should be honest and open to the reality at hand. This doesn’t mean that you should immediately change your life to reflect the loss or give up hope that you might eventually find happiness again; it simply means acknowledging the emotions you are feeling and being patient with the process.

    It may also be helpful to accept that the pain associated with missing your loved one will never completely go away. Such feelings good never truly dissipate, but with enough time and effort you can learn to manage them in healthier, less destructive ways.

    Another way to mitigate these feelings is to engage in activities that offer comfort and solace. Whether it’s journaling, painting, hiking, yoga, meditation, or even just drinking tea and watching the sunrise, it’s important to find activities that bring peace and calmness to your mind and soul.

    Getting in touch with nature can provide an extra layer of comfort. Being outside surrounded by trees and flowers can help you feel closer to your loved one, even if they are no longer physically present. Taking long walks and engaging in outdoor activities can give you the physical and mental break that you need during this challenging period.

    It’s also important to reach out to people who understand what you’re going through and can offer advice and support when needed. Connecting with loved ones, attending grief and bereavement support groups, and talking to a therapist are all valuable outlets for dealing with the pain of missing someone.

    Finally, if possible, take time away from your everyday routine. Book a vacation, take a weekend trip, or plan a staycation in your hometown. Getting out of your comfort zone, even for a short time, can help you recharge and come back with a positive outlook on life.

    No matter how dark it may seem, remember that the grief process is a normal part of healing. With a little self-care and plenty of support, you can survive this difficult period and eventually find the strength to carry on.
