Let’s talk grief
Covid 19 has increased awareness about death and dying. More people are talking about it, realizing they are not invincible, and the possibility of dying is 100% - no matter what it is caused by.
In our current health environment, friends and family are experiencing the loss of loved ones; young, old, and in between. Traditional rites of passage have been stripped from our culture. We miss the opportunity to say last good-byes, reconcile relationships or tell them one more time how much they are loved. Those left behind grapple with guilt, grief, and a host of other emotions.
The loss of a child is unique and said to be the worst of all losses. To have a child pass before a parent is not the order of life. Children are supposed to outlive their parents. That is what shocks us: the order of life is now scrambled, and nobody wants to talk about it.
It stinks to be a member of the child loss club. I have lost not just one child, but two and understand how difficult it is to cope and move through loss. I also know that it can be done, one can find joy and be happy.
My book, Life After Child Loss: The Mother’s Survival Guide to Cope and Find Joy is available on Amazon. You personally may or may not have experienced child loss, however through six-degrees of separation (or less), you know someone who would benefit by reading it. Click here for the Kindle version. If you prefer, shoot me a quick email and I will directly send you a downloadable PDF.
Please share. Do not keep it a secret. I am convinced there is someone you know that needs this.
