If your pet has died, You are allowed to be sad. It will be painful... for now.
You will have days where you can’t find anything to be happy about, AND you will have days that are a little brighter than others. This does not mean you miss your pet any less, it doesn’t mean you have forgotten them.
I challenge you to add ‘for now’ to your feelings. I don’t feel like socialising with other dog owners, for now... My heart hurts, for now... For Now May feel like a long time, but it will not mean Forever 💛
