Join a gym or outdoor group for relaxation and to combat the loneliness. In time, you may be able to call the step children to bring their kids over.
Time, my friend, it's going to take time. Just be patient and gentle with yourself and understand this is called grief. It's normal to feel what you are feeling.
In time, you will decide what is right for you and you will do that. This does not last forever, it feels like it but it doesn't.
Take care of you.
Thank you Sparkles. I too am suffering today and it helps to keep hearing positive forward thinking comments. This too shall pass.
