For many in the world, February is a month to celebrate love, from hopeful new beginnings to anniversaries of love that has stood the test of time. And yet, there are those who have loved so fiercely and lost so deeply, that February is nothing more than a painful reminder of what once was.
If you’ve lost a loved one, it’s important to remember that healing and recovery is possible…and necessary. Learning to live your life again doesn’t mean you don’t remember the love you once had. It means you learn how to live with and move past the pain.
So, how do we learn from the lessons our lost love has taught us? One way is to surround yourself with a good support system of friends and professionals that will be there for you and help guide you through this process. Along this line, our guest articles this month will focus on two specific aspects of recovery: personal recovery after divorce and coping with a loved one’s addiction.
