And we think about it consciously or unconsciously when the reality of mortality hits home.

This work makes it easy to access an area of interest and discover down to earth, tried and true exercises, suggestions and solutions for living with loss. Some of the life and death issues presented in these pages include expected or sudden loss; male and female reactions; funerals; personal choices; pet loss; loss of a child; suicide; intimacy after loss; and keeping those who have died present in our lives.

📒Healing Through The Shadow Of Loss ✍ Deborah Morris Coryell
📝Healing Through the Shadow of Loss Book Synopsis : A guide to achieving wholeness through the process and purpose of grief • Brings new understanding to the profound mystery of loss shared by all human beings • Offers sensitive and practical advice for experiencing grief and how to prepare for the healing journey that follows • Winner of the Independent Publisher Award in 1999 • New edition of Good Grief, published Oct 1995 We grieve only for that which we have loved, and the transient nature of life makes love and loss intimate companions. In Healing Through the Shadow of Loss Deborah Morris Coryell describes grief as the experience of not having anywhere to place our love, of losing a connection, an outlet for our emotion. To heal grief we have to learn how to continue to love in the face of loss. Embracing loss allows us to awaken our most profound connections to other people. Part of the grieving process is finding our place in the world again following a loss. We tend to define ourselves in relation to those we love--as “Laura’s mother,” “Jim’s wife,” or “Stacey’s friend.” The loss of a loved one is jarring to these foundations and can make us question our own sense of reality. In addition, the body must adjust to the sensory changes of having lost a part of our life, a part of our daily existence. Coryell draws attention to our society’s tendency to rank losses in a “hierarchy of grief.” She reminds us that all losses must be grieved in their own right and on their own terms, and that we must honor the “big” losses as well as the “small” ones. Paying attention to even the most minute experiences of loss can help us to be more in tune with our responses to the greater ones, allowing us to once again become part of the rhythm of life from which we have become disconnected.

📒Good Grief ✍ Erica McNeal
📝Good Grief Book Synopsis : "Unmet expectations and conflicts arise, when a person is hurting and doesn't know what they need, and their loved ones don't know what to say or how to help." By the time author Erica McNeal was thirty-two years old, she was already a three-time cancer survivor, and had experienced the loss of five children, two of which she held in her arms. Those close to her were not sure of how to console her, and some well-intended comments only served to hurt Erica and her family in their healing process. For example, imagine being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, at twenty-two years old, and having your best friend tell you that she wished she had cancer too, so that people would like her. Or imagine being pressured to hold a friend's baby-a child that was born the same day you buried your daughter, in order to "prove your love" for the couple. These statements represent only a fraction, and not even the worst, of the painful words spoken to her family while they struggled through cancer treatments and grieved the loss of their children. "Good Grief!" is a book filled with tangible solutions for determining what to say, what not to say, and what to do, in order to love others well, through difficult times!
