By leaving town so soon after the death however, you may interrupt some critical aspects of your mourning process. Some of the problems that can come up include:
- Feeling disoriented when you arrive at your destination. Now that your whole world has been turned upside down by your loss, the new location will lack the comfort of familiar objects.
Although painful, the adjustment period right after your spouse/partner’s death is an extremely important one.
So give yourself plenty of time before taking out that suitcase.
