You are faced with the challenge of doing some things differently since the death of your loved one. Yet it can be very hard to even know how or where to begin. Sometimes fear of not being able to deal with the changes can keep us stuck.
* Fear the future will not be any better than today
* Fear the unknown
* Fear how you will survive as a single person in a couples world
* Fear other people we love will also die or fear our own death
* Fear that if we allow ourselves to cry, we won't be able to stop
* Fear that you will not make the right decisions
You may be able to think of other fears.
When we allow fear to control us then we have chosen to be stuck. Robert Frost believes the best way out of fear is through it. We must choose to become involved with life. Talk with others who experience fear but are trying to not allow fear to take over.
Fear can be a sign of unresolved grief. If you find yourself unable to deal with the fear, meeting with a grief counselor my be helpful to address and resolve this fear. Fear must be dealt with in order for us to become unstuck.
