If you have lost a loved one, it can be challenging to deal with the sorrow or grief that you feel. This isn't the right time to make any big life choices as you may end up making an impulsive decision, one that you may rue in the future. Some major life choices that you should keep on hold when you're grieving are:
There are times when people that have lost a partner are unable to cope with the loss, and they feel a distinct urge to sell their home and relocate. This is because the current home holds a lot of memories, and they are unable to come to terms with living in that space alone. However, this is one decision you should never take in haste, especially when you are grieving.
You may also feel like you want to discard keepsakes and reminders as they bring up painful memories. But make sure that this is something you refrain from as you may regret discarding them. Take this decision only after your grief has decreased to a certain degree, and you can think more clearly.
There are times when people who are grieving cannot find the strength or will you get up in the morning and go to work. This is when they start considering quitting their existing job. But this is a decision you should always keep on hold for at least six months before you decide what to do.
Do not make any drastic financial changes either. Give your grief some time to subside and then get back to all of these significant life decisions so that you make a wiser and rational choice.
