Kristi, I hope you know that no one can tell you how long it takes to heal from grief. I know someone still grieving his wife after 20 years. Be gentle with yourself. There are natural stages you need to go through. Time is the great healer, of course.

It may also be bringing up a feeling of abandonment from childhood. Go in and feel if there is someone who left you before you were ready for them to go (even a childhood friend who found another best friend like one of my recent clients). Grieve the old wounds as well. It may help.
