Welcome to The Cynical Widow!

Hi, 

welcome to my blog. I never thought about writing a blog. I was always awful with journaling (usually forgot to write anything for days or weeks). This changed a bit after I got widowed, because journaling became an outlet to share how I really feel - something I wasn't and sill not comfortable sharing with anyone. Blogging about the daily struggles seemed like pouring more negativity out there on the world wide web that it doesn't need. 

In the past 4.5 years however, I got wiser, I learned a lot about myself, and I read hundreds and hundreds of stories and posts in various widow/widower groups on social media. I was 32 when I joined this club, and I got my fair share of unsolicited advice and hurtful comments and pitiful looks, and I feel that now it's time to do something with them.

This blog is my own take on various topics related to widowhood, sometimes with a cynical or sarcastic edge. I wouldn't dare to say that I am all right on these and anyone else who feels or thinks differently are wrong. We are all different, our roads are different, but I hope you will find this blog informative or entertaining enough to stick around. 

K.
