  • It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family    member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.
