I have kids under 5 so I am not showing up. All the gathering is optional. Don’t give in to social pressure.

Repeating what EY1 said. All gathering is optional! No one should be upset if you don’t attend; from my experience, everyone is understanding, which I appreciate in these times.

Don’t feel pressured, It’s for those that are comfortable attending!!

100% agree with the others. There’s no obligation whatsoever

What has helped you as you grieved the loss of a parent? My husband has just lost 3 family members, including his dad, to covid. They aren't in the US and died waiting for hospital beds. Two adult sisters and his mother live here so thinking of bringing cooked meals over for them and of course doing everything around the house and being present to listen and give hugs to my husband. Any tips on how to best support everyone through the grieving? Any advice is appreciated.

How do you make a new friends in 2022? Took a job in a small, quiet city. Blue New England area that's very COVID cautious. Most bars close before 11p.

I'm not even talking about dating (though that'd be nice), I'm just talking about not spending all my off time drinking alone in my apartment.
