Yes, you must do your work [internal, grief, recovery work] but you must also make your life a refuge from the rains and storms that come through every life (functional or not functional, that is just the way life is). Your life must be a warm cushiony place to catch you when you fall. A warm and loving place to retreat to, full of loving people and your own interests, and all the warm and loving things you have filled it with. If you do that you have the opportunity to not only have a firm foundation underneath you to weather any storm but you get the opportunity to feel JOY when it comes along. And it will come along.
