Your Grief Matters
You can absolutely journey from mourning to morning. We only uncover what is truly important about ourselves by how we respond to the losses in our lives, and so each loss becomes our cherished teacher. Some examples of loss include:
the death of a loved one, or a less-than-loved-one; divorce; serious physical, mental or emotional illness; financial distress; the end of a serious relationship; when a child leaves home for college; and even the death of a pet. Each loss creates a grief reaction, and we must be able to complete our relationship with our loss before we can move past it. He is widely published, and his upcoming book, And God
To recover from loss and move to a life of joy requires two actions: 1. to give up the hope for a different or better yesterday, and 2. to complete your relationship with who or what was lost. Until this happens, the dead remain alive, and the living are deadened to a joyous life.
