You have permission to take a year and a day.

That's traditional.

People have been grieving for ages, it's the human thing to do.

Have the feelings, explore them, cherish them but don't let them own you.

"I'm sure I've overstayed my welcome!" Ha Ha Ha. This isn't the Hotel California, you're always free to leave.

Thank Susan for sharing your experiences. So many here are lucky that they have not yet suffered grief. That is reserved for those who have been lucky enough to have loved and been loved in return.

Free includes debt-free!
