Before this life altering event happened to me, I had no idea losing a husband caused such devastating despair. I always admired the courage of those who had lost a loved one and how they were able to cope. I was convinced I would have had an emotional breakdown apart from God's sustaining presence. I have tried lately to make some goals for myself This has been a painful process, as it focuses me on the future which still seems full of questions and insecurities.
For me, I have tried to stay short-term. I need to keep them attainable and I need to be careful not to expect too much of myself. I understand now how easy it is to send myself down a road that does not lead away from depression that awaits me.
