I wasn't going to bother posting about this but this is a good way to get it out and let it go. In the past two months, I have heard all kinds of things. Most of it has been the typical sorry for your loss. There have been a few things said that even though I let them slide at the time, they really did annoy me.
Here they are, in no particular order.
- "insert name of person," said that you aren't going to be able to afford to stay in your house. Someone told me that one about a week after the funeral. I had no idea that anyone knew that much about my finances.
- You really didn't have that much of a marriage, did you?
- Well, it's not like you guys were that close. Yes, these last two comments were really made. Maybe Wade and I didn't have the best marriage, but that didn't make the loss any less painful. I suppose people thought that because I was married to an alcoholic and we didn't spend a lot of time together like most couples do that it was insignificant.
- This last one I just hear the other day. Are you still in your house?
