I've been a widow since 1999, and it's never gonna be the same.
I finished working long enough to draw my pension, and retired at age 52 because I had a son starting kindergarten and a son starting junior high school that year. A lot to juggle, esp, with a 35-mi commute each way to/from work.
I think the best thing I've done for myself is to stop expecting it to get easier. I stopped pressuring myself to "get over it", to "move on", oh, how I hate the term "move on"! I'm still missing my sweetheart 24/7/365. I cannot imagine NOT missing him; we were true soul mates.
