How To Survive Your Grief

Poorna KTB Wedding Photography

It's been nearly two years since my husband Rob passed away by suicide, proving that time can be both elastic and uncompromising. Elastic in that if I close my eyes, I can almost hear his voice in the next room. Uncompromising in that time moves on, relentlessly, even when I haven't been ready to let go or accept that he is really gone. Although there are circumstances that make each and every type of bereavement unique - mine was that Rob was my spouse, had depression and struggled with addiction - there is a universality in how we, as human beings, deal with grief.
