Learning to Live with Loss

The good news is that the pain of loss does soften over the years. I never like the phrase “get over it”.  I prefer that we “accommodate” our losses. It weaves into the fabric of our lives.

The bad news is that Grief can resurrect itself at any time, even years later—when you smell a familiar scent, when you see a couple walking hand in hand, when you see a child the same age as when your own child died. You know what I’m talking about. It can hit you like a sledgehammer or it can hit with sweet memories. Sometimes, down the Road, you may remember the pain but you don’t feel the pain.  What a relief when that finally happens.

If you haven’t done your grief work, the pain is more likely to impact you. Reading my book, Courage Road: Your Guide from Grief to Hope, will show you the many ways to do your grief work. Thank you to all of you who purchase it on my website for yourself or a friend or family member.

My purpose and goal with Courage Road has always been to reach more grievers who need help on this difficult journey. I’ve avoided this marketing stuff for a long time, but I’m now attempting to go full force. I’ll be much more active on Courage Road Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and who knows what else. I’d appreciate your support in reading what I post. Did you know that even if you read but not “like”,  it helps Google know this information is valuable?

Also, I've set up a review page on FB. That’s different than just writing a comment.  Would you mind writing a review about either my book or the help that you have received.  https://www.facebook.com/pg/courageroad/reviews/ THANK YOU SO MUCH.
