Few things are as devastating as losing a life partner. People building their life and routines around their spouses or lovers so their death is a destabilizing blow to those left behind. At Nutmeg State Cremation Society, we have seen many people struggle to deal with the loss of their soulmate. Here are some tips that can help:

1. Don’t Ignore Your Grief

Partners are often forced to ignore their grief because they have other responsibilities. They need to care for children, handle their spouse’s assets and obligations, console family members, and more. That leaves behind little time for grief, which can cause mental health issues down the line. Take a break from all of these responsibilities and mourn for your loss.

2. Spend Time With Friends

Friends are an important resource at this time because they are a neutral party. Unlike your family members, they’re unburdened by the grief and you can rely on them to offer complete support. Spend some time with them by visiting their home, going on long drives, having lunch, or watching movies. All of these activities will provide a pleasant distraction, allowing you to focus on something other than grief.

3. Establish a New Ritual

Our partners become such a big aspect of the daily routine that it is difficult to cope after they are gone. Establishing a new ritual or routine can help you adjust with the new normal. The new routine will ensure you don't feel the absence as keenly and can move on with life to some extent. Establishing new routines can also help children recover by providing them with some stability.

At Nutmeg State Cremation Society, we provide comprehensive funeral services and can help you with all aspects of the process so if you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
