Advice for Moving Forward

“Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. For those who love with their heart and soul there is no separation!” —Rumi

We know that losing a loved one is difficult. Keep these things in mind as you navigate this new normal:

• Keep memories alive by making a scrapbook of photos of the life you shared with your loved one.
• Recall the good times you shared together.
• Spend time with positive people.
• Embrace moments of joy.
• In time, you may find yourself ready for new interests.
• Always remember that moving on with your life does not mean you are forgetting your loved one.
• It is okay to take time for yourself, to experience life again and not be as afraid of the future.
• One day you will smile and laugh again.
• Lean into your faith or the places you find strength.
