Support to a grieving wife


Recommended Posts

  • Members

My wife’s father passed a couple weeks ago and this has been a very long two weeks. 

I love her very much and am doing what I can to take on the responsibilities around the house while she is grieving and also making myself emotionally available to her. 

It is a roller coaster here to say the least and a lot of the time, it feels she wants nothing to do with me, but in the minutes following, she will get a call from family or friends and she’s her bubbly self again. When the call has ended, the energy in the house is back to the same sad place.

I am respectful of her space and trying to be understanding and supportive however I can.

I am on this roller coaster as well, but I don’t have the emotions that are driving it. 

I try to imagine if I lost my father and can only feel that I would need my wife more than ever during that time.
