Members cocoagirl3 Posted December 3, 2007 Members Report Share Posted December 3, 2007 I know this forum is for people who have lost a loved one, but this is so I can help a very dear friend of mine who, after 28 years (almost 2 years ago) lost his wife to cancer.. He lost his wife after 28 years of a wonderful marriage and he came into where I worked, I saw him,asked about him and prayed for two years for his strength & peacefulness... He finally came up to me about 3 months ago and asked me for coffee, we became instant friends.. He said he had moved on. We had been pretty strong together including getting very, very close but then he started pulling away from me. He was going to put a hold on our relationship when we had lunch at his house one day when he took me on a short trip (I didn't know what he was doing) and took me to her gravesite and introduced me to her and her to me, it was very touching...He kept pulling back and back and then he would want me over then back again, finally the other day he told me he didn't like the holidays, hated them since he was little and that we must put our relationship on hold until he got his emotions and feelings together... Now I know he cares for me and I do adore him but I want to know what to do now to help him through what seems to be a very hard time. He is saying his world has no purpose, that hurts.... Here we have shared our souls just about for months and he keeps pulling back, what am I to do to ease his pain?????? I want to be there for him right now, but he doesn't want to be with anyone, and no he is not going to kill himself, I feel certain of this..Anyone have any suggestions?
