bluecastle Posted May 20, 2020 Share Posted May 20, 2020 Totally normal, yes. Much as we like to find comfort in thinking of these things in terms of steps—forward, back—it really doesn't work that way. Feelings come and go, some sweet, some sharp, none of them permanent but all of them needing to be honored. Maybe try to think of this as something to feel through for a bit, with time your best friend, rather than something "bad" to step away from into something "good." That way it's more about accepting the process of grieving loss—the loss of your father, the loss of a guy who, for a time, seemed to mitigate that larger loss—rather than seeking comfort in clarity in results.
