It can be hard to break free of the bonds of being in a relationship. I’m not sure I ever would have if my wife hadn’t died. I had two failed relationships after her. And in both I felt a pull to be alone for a while. When the second went up in smoke I almost started dating again but stopped myself. And now, seven months later, I’m wondering if I ever want to be in a relationship again. It’s a whole new life and I’m just figuring out how to live it.
