After the year of “firsts” has passed, many widowed people experience a shift in their grief, and in the support they receive from the people around them. There is a different expectation of what your grief should look like from society, friends, family and sometimes, from ourselves. The people in our lives may think you need less help now and the reality is you may actually need more. The second year marks 365 days that you have lived as a newly widowed person and the absence of your partner is felt even more deeply. Your new reality is beginning to settle in, loneliness might be all encompassing, and managing all the pieces of your life can now be exhausting and overwhelming. You don’t have to do it alone.

Join Nancy Saltzman and Greg Roman to discuss the experience of widowhood after that first year is through, and to collect some tools to help you navigate the new life that you are creating one day at a time.
