I feel I am going through the motions

I start each day the same. I keep myself busy with house chores, reading books, participate with friends and family. But I feel I am going through the motions. There is this unexplained emptiness that you know will never go away. I reach out to the Lord in prayer every day.   Pat

One thought on “I feel I am going through the motions

  1. Pat – you are grieving the loss of a loved one. What you are experiencing is normal. The feeling of emptiness is normal and will gradually change over time; it will soften as you learn to cope with your grief and learn how to reconcile not having the physical presence of your loved one, transforming it into a “presence of memory”. Feel free to keep posting here as a way to express your thoughts and feelings, which can be helpful to you.
