  2. How to know that you are beginning to heal: The process can take a long time, and itís hard work, different for everyone.  First, you need to know that there is no timetable for recovery from grief.  After you have done some of the hard work of putting things into perspective, giving yourself permission to enjoy life (which your spouse would have wanted you to do), you will gradually see that you are beginning to look more toward the future than the past.  That is the first sign that you are on the right road.  It does not mean that you value your deceased spouse less, or love him/her less, or will forget anything.  It means that perspective has been reached, corresponding to the real world.  Your fantasies about your spouse returning from the grave, very common, begin to abate at this point, or close to this point as well.
     
  3. How to survive financially after the death of a spouse: Social Security has provided a small amount of money for burial expenses, and if you have children below the age of eighteen, and if your spouse paid into the Social Security system for an adequate number of quarters, your children will be eligible for benefits until their eighteenth birthday, and it can add up to a significant amount.

 

You Deserve Love.
