Anatole France said:
“All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.”

Every separation can leave us with a sense of loss, and during that time we can feel adrift, dissatisfied and unhappy.

Every loss leaves us feeling uncertain about what to do next. This is when some people try to assuage the uncomfortable feelings by attempts at recreating the past, which is the opposite of growth. The best course of action is no action.

Adapting to loss or change takes time. How long? Who knows. Stay with it and accept where you are.
